Laid out in a logical way, its outlines red flags, risk factors, causes, assessment, diagnostics, and management of various conditions.

While the book is informative and easy to read, it does not cover as wide a range of conditions, pathologies, and illnesses as other available texts.

Helpful for certain readers
