This book on the proper way to take a patient history is by a professor of medicine of the KPC Medical College in India.


As the preface notes, the purpose is to "give a proper, concise, comprehensive and complete picture of all the systems of the body," while "helping students learn proper history-taking from all types of patients including physically handicapped and emotionally fragile patients."


The primary audience is medical students and clinicians practicing in India.
However, the extensive photographs illustrate pathological conditions not usually included in other books, which can be educational for students around the world.


The book begins with chapters addressing how to obtain the history from the patient and some general considerations regarding the physical examination.
These are followed by chapters on the specifics of the examination of the different organ systems in relation to the anatomy and physiology and characteristic symptoms, along with explanations of traditional eponyms used in medicine and exquisite photographs that add great depth to the bulleted descriptions.


This unique book combines the concepts of obtaining a history and performing a physical examination with many photographs of characteristic patients as observed in the clinic. This weaving of the theory with the practical gives this book significant value.
