    Read more excerpts from the review:

    "This book not only provides a solid foundation of health history and physical examination knowledge, it also links this with beginning diagnostic reasoning skills.

    The audience includes advanced practice primary care/healthcare students and faculty. The authors are both experienced advanced practice nurse practitioners with a breadth of knowledge to share with readers.

    The initial three chapters ground readers in the areas of health history, physical examination, and diagnostic reasoning. The subsequent chapters address these topics through various systemic disorders. Each chapter includes valuable information related to assessing special/specific populations and includes a case review. Many clear diagrams and pictures enhance understanding.

    [This text] helps readers to link the pieces of the process and begin to understand how diagnostic reasoning is accomplished in a patient care setting. The case reviews are a wonderful mechanism to create the linkage. The [new] edition is more than justified since healthcare is constantly evolving."
