“The Hands-on Guide to Clinical Reasoning in Medicine is a great book aimed at medical students. It uses ideas such as concept maps, activities, and cases to take learners through the diagnostic process in an explicit way. This approach is likely to be more useful than a 'traditional' textbook when it comes to thinking through real patients' problems. The book covers the internal medicine curriculum, and there is also an accompanying website. It's well laid out and easy to read. It's designed to be an internal medicine textbook written through a clinical reasoning lens - and the result is a practical book that makes learning more likely to happen. I'd recommend it to medical students, junior doctors, advanced clinical practitioners, and others who need to get to grips with the basics of medicine but in a thoroughly practical and applicable way.” – Dr Nicola Cooper, Consultant Physician, Honorary Clinical Associate Professor, University Hospitals of Derby & Burton NHS Foundation Trust and University of Nottingham, UK and co-editor of the ABC of Clinical Reasoning.
