Primary care clinicians will find Noble's Textbook of Primary Care Medicine a valuable addition to their personal medical libraries. Written by experts throughout the United States, the book addresses the practical, hands-on needs of clinicians wanting to improve their medical skills and knowledge. Although it would be useful for students and residents, the book focuses primarily on issues faced by experienced and busy practitioners. The book also has a companion CD-ROM. The sophistication of the book is evidence of its maturity and growth into a third edition, whereas the CD-ROM displays a surprising degree of amateurism. So, skip the CD-ROM, but strongly consider buying the book.
