Davidson’s essentials is intended as a portable mini-textbook of medicine, primarily for medical students, for reference and reading while “on the move”. Although portable electronic formats such as PDAs may be good for reference purposes, they can be difficult to read or study from. Likewise, many existing handbooks use a list-based presentation that is not suitable for the novice learner seeking basic comprehension. Thus, Davidson’s essentials is a useful contribution that generally achieves the stated goals of its editor.
