Published Reviews

The style of the book ensures its readability. It is written in a pithy "note form" style with the book's mascot - the crash-helmeted bike rider - presiding over important "need to know" stuff...the stuff that virtually every doctor will eventually need.
Dr Jeremy Sager, Univadis

The curriculum coverage is comprehensive and the level of detail throughout is impressive. This book is delightfully easy to read and logically arranged.

I really enjoyed reading this book and it will come in handy in some of my teaching.

Dr Steven De Wilde, GP Trainer and Academic, Tooting, South London
