"The authors have done an excellent job with this book, which is essentially a condensed version of the much larger textbook. This book is actually portable, small enough to keep in a first aid kit or to take on a trip, but packed with concise and useful information on nearly every subject and scenario imaginable. Many of the topics are also relevant to everyday practice in a clinic, emergency department, or hospital setting."-Ericl Ellingson, MD(Regions Hospital and Level 1 Trauma Center) Doody Review: 4 stars
