Praise for previous editions:
"An original approach to teaching about patients rather than diseases... The student will learn how to decide which children may be treated at home, which need further investigation, and which are in `pre-arrest status.' The text is profusely illustrated with short clinical histories and each chapter is followed by ten to twenty multiple-choice questions."--New England Journal of Medicine
"An excellent short textbook for students... The problem-solving approach taken by these authors represents a laudable effort to help our students become more active learners and apply pathophysiology effectively to clinical medicine."--Pamela R. Wood, M.D., University of Texas, San Antonio
