New for this edition:
This is a great book, I love it. It is a very easy read and lots of pictures which is a plus for me because I’m a visual learner. If you don’t like to read the chapters I suggest looking at the boxes, charts and red text on the margins of the book, very detailed in explanation. This book does not have a lot of fluff though. One thing I would recommend is that the pocket guide be sold In a pack with the textbook. I had to purchase them separately and that pocket guide is very helpful in clinical.
