5.0 out of 5 stars All Doctors should read this book (and Nurses, Therapists, Pharmacists etc.), 14 Sep 2006
By 
This is the best place to start when reading about the consultation. It is clear, straightforward, concise and comprehensive. You can read this in the bath or on the train - it's not a book you have to study, you know most of this intuitively anyway, but this puts a framework on things. You WILL start to consult better IMMEDIATELY after reading each chapter!

The reading list at the end is full of gems old and new, and it references all the classic consultation models and strategies, but is still fresh and up to date with all the latest thoughts and ideas.

This is not just for GPs, but GPs actually try to be good at talking to patients, so most will have read this. Any doctor could benefit (even ones working in a lab!) from this book, and I would heartily recommend it to all. Other healthcare workers who consult will also find it invaluable.

5.0 out of 5 stars A "must read" simple as that!, 2 Dec 2006
I was drawn to this book having read Peter Tate's Novel called "Seasickness"

I really wanted to get more into where he had got his motivation for the book through his history of practice. I am thinking of becoming a writer myself, and wanted to research further into the adaptablity of this writer from a more theoretical background into a fictional style. Something I know a lot of authors fail at.

I found it to be another shining example of how this author manages to turn a fairly heavy subject into a far more accessable read for not only the Professionals amongst you, but the normal everyday reader as well. It is true that it is aimed more at the medical profession, but I learnt a great deal about how my doctor probably deals with me from it.

Even if you only use it as a reference guide it is a good tool to have.

I would heartedly recommend this writer to you all, a balance like this is hard to find. Well Done Peter!
