On previous editions ...

Thus this isakin to carrying around a consultant-like opinion and font ofknowledge in your pocket, and acting as an aid to making youropinion comparable to that of a senior colleague. It is also likehaving a slice out of one of the bigger textbooks, but being ableto carry it around, and maybe, surreptitiously look up a topic."Gastroenterology Today
