I owned the prior edition and gave it only four stars because it lacked a chapter on prenatal care. This edition corrects that omission. I have been using this book for the past month to prepare for the April 2015 re-certification, which I first took in 1986. I highly recommend this book for that purpose. Each disease section is organized so you can jump right to the section you want. For me, the symptoms, signs and labs are very familiar, but the treatments have all changed a lot over 30 years, so I jump to that. The book is written mostly by family medicine faculty rather than other specialists, so they know what we see and focus on that, rather than obscure diseases that we will refer out anyway. I owned both the print and kindle editions for the 3rd edition. The formatting of the numerous tables don’t format well in the kindle edition, so I strongly recommend the print version.
Maybe it was more “current” in 2015, but it’s not up to date for 2018. As a 3rd year resident, I bought this book to supplement board studying, I now regret it. Some quick examples of how out to date this text is are: it doesn’t mention ASCVD risk, it has LDL goals (which was changed 2014), it says there are only 2 IUD available in the US, there are at least 5, but skyla came out in 2013, so if they had been up to date for 2015, they would have said 3. I know this seems petty, but every chapter I’ve looked at seems to be omitting something important or just seems very dated. They will need to do quite a bit of editing to this book to reflect the current practice standards.
