The 12th Edition of this famous medical textbook, which was ‘Highly Commended’ in the 2006 British Medical Association Medical Book Competition, builds on the extensively rewritten previous edition. Over 500 clinical photographs and diagrams now illustrate the text, whilst new topics have been added to make the book even more comprehensive. A complementary DVD now accompanies the book, with specially-recorded videos demonstrating many of the clinical examination routines as they are described in the main text. The book is written by a team of editors and contributors who are all active clinicians and experts in their specialist fields, including in general practice where much of clinical teaching is now based. It describes the practical skills which every clinician must acquire and develop in order to evolve diagnostic procedures and management strategies and plans.

"The book is extremely well laid out with each chapter covering a different system and a basic review of the relevant anatomy prior to exploring symptoms associated with pathology to that system and the physical examination. Althought it may look a little intimidating at first, this book manages to deliver crucial information ( especially for OSPE revision) without losing the simplicity which makes it so readable."
