UK books concerning the consultation are typically perhaps more scholarly and somewhat less practical than a typical US one. Liz Moulton has produced a relatively concise and very practical offering, linked to the Calgary Cambridge synthesis.
What I liked.
The structure of the chapters flows very well. The text is concise and clear - and the text and chunks are very well broken up and presented making this an easily digestible book. Hence, one can easily maintain concentration and read it all the way, or equally dip in and out with clarity.
As I have already stated, the focus is immensely practical and whilst this is aimed at a primary care doctor, most of the suggestions are good for nurses and secondary care doctors as well.
What I didnt like
Not much really. I could suggest a little more referencing, perhaps bringing in a slightly wider range of theory.
5/5 for what it is trying to do. The most useful new consultation book in the UK for many years. Buy it (I dont have shares).
