Reviews

From the reviews of the second edition:

“Dr. Colgan has given us a valuable and unique guide. This book is for every student and practitioner in medicine or nursing as well as all who wish to understand medicine. The author is a well-respected educator and clinician. … This is an outstanding book, one which may be overlooked by many in the crush of everyday practice, but which will help many put the challenges and problems of the field of medicine into proper perspective.” (Vincent F. Carr, Doody’s Book Reviews, May, 2013)
