In my review of the 2009 version, I noted, ‘This is what a modern textbook should be. It is concise yet comprehensive in the breadth of topics and, as the title suggests, robust with color photographs of extraordinarily good quality.’ That statement stands for this book as well -- this is what a modern textbook should be. Reiterating my thoughts from 2009, ‘By far, this is one of the best, most useful textbooks I have seen in a very long time. It is a must for the library of every primary care physician." --5 Stars--Doody's Review Service This beautiful full-color resource delivers everything practicing internists want and need in an atlas. The book features a strong visual approach, the use of introductory cases in all chapters, complete patient management guidance through concise synoptic text, and the inclusion of evidence grades for diagnosis and treatment recommendations.
