I’m an MS2 interested in trying to narrow down my search for which specialty I’d enjoy most. I haven’t seen the previous edition of this book, but from the reviews on the previous one, it sounds like this one is essentially the same. The book is great for starting to think about different specialties and offers good advice for things to consider when trying to choose. However, all of the short write-ups on each specialty are written by a specialist in the field who is really only focused on the pros of the field. I was hoping for a critical evaluation of the possible pros and cons of each field, but instead each description is very one-sided. It does offer good stats on boards scores, average salaries for each field, match rates, etc. Overall I think it’s a good reference, but it’s not as objective as I was hoping and I don’t feel like there were too many special nuggets of information that I might not hear about each field. I was hoping for a special inside view of the fields with tidbits that you don’t know until you are actually in the field. I think that because I just don’t know enough about choosing a specialty that it’s a good place to start, but it’s not quite what I was hoping for.
