This second edition continues like the first edition in the Osler tradition and integrates the major facets of Internal Medicine through the eyes of one man. In places it may seem somewhat oversimplified. But it is factual, concise, and the chapters are readable without being exhausting. Sections on psychiatry and peripheral vascular disease have been added. There are eight more pictures and 52 more pages. Otherwise it remains essentially the same in format and spirit. The initial chapter on "Fundamentals of Diagnosis" still makes a good introduction to clinical medicine for students.
Some charts (cf. table 3) seem unduly elaborate
