Abstract

[Extract] In 2006-2007, the Australian Government estimated there were 25,564 general practitioners (GPs) in the country. There would be few GPs who did not have a textbook by John Murtagh in the bookcase of their practice. For those GPs wanting a portable ready reference, then the fourth edition of the John Murtagh's General Practice Companion Handbook is a "must-have" manual. First published in 1996, the fourth edition of John Murtagh's General Practice Companion Handbook contains a Preface, About the author, Laboratory reference values, Normal values-diagnostic guidelines, a list of abbreviations, a table of contents, and an A-Z of general practice conditions listed alphabetically. There is not index as the table of contents is a comprehensive alphabetical listing of all conditions discussed. There is also no bibliography nor a glossary. The handbook is presented with a durable plastic cover printed in full colour as an 18×11.5 cm manual, which would easily fit into the clinical/suit coat pocket or briefcase/handbag.
