"The ′Pocket Consultants′ are a popular series of books aimed at doctors in training, both under– and post–graduate. Thus this is akin to carrying around a consultant–like opinion and font of knowledge in your pocket, and acting as an aid to making your opinion comparable to that of a senior colleague.

"This little book is valuable support for junior hospital staff and general practitioners." Scandinavian Journal of Gastroenterology
