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.

It is a must for the library of every primary care physician." --5 Stars--Doody's Review ServiceThis beautiful full-color resource delivers everything practicing internists want and need in an atlas.
