For years, didactic lectures and traditional textbooks have dominated medical education in North America. However, in recent years, traditional teachings have been challenged, and medical education is slowly evolving from a shell of spoon-fed information to an open buffet of problem-based learning. As this new method of instruction is adopted, the format of textbooks is changing. This could not be more beautifully illustrated than in Levis and Garmel's Clinical Emergency Medicine Casebook.
