Here's what the BMA reviewers said:
"I would unreservedly recommend this book to any medical student and indeed anyone else who wanted to learn more about internal medicine including junior doctors, nurses, physicians' assistants. I would have loved a book like this when I was a medical student."

Medicine in a Minute is a brand new full-colour text covering the fundamentals of undergraduate medicine in one book. Medical students no longer have the time or inclination to read the huge texts that used to dominate this market - they need a concise book that covers the core information they have to know, and in a user-friendly format: Medicine in a Minute is this book!

The book is edited and written by two of the authors behind the bestselling Cardiology in a Heartbeat and features several common design elements and features.

The book is divided into body systems and then each section within the particular body system follows a consistent pattern:

• Definition  • Epidemiology  • Risk factors  • Differential diagnosis  • Aetiology  • Pathophysiology • Clinical features  • Investigations  • Management

Medicine in a Minute is a student-friendly, concise text that you will want close to hand throughout your studies.

Amazon 5-star reviews:

“I love the final chapter with all emergency scenarios with ABCDE approach! Highly recommend this book to students especially clinical years and finals!”

“I really like the layout and simple nature of this textbook. It covers all of the major topics in medicine and doesn't give you any waffle.”

“I’ve bought many medical textbooks during my time in medical school but I can simply say this is the best of its type. Pitched at exactly the right level for clinical medicine.”
