    A really good book

    The General Medical Semiology Guide I and II are really special books. The author wanted to make a book she wanted to have as well when she was a student at the faculty of medicine. As a student she always wanted to see pictures with all the signs of the diseases she was studying so that she could recognize them looking at patients and then make a diagnosis easily at the first look. With this book (in two volumes) she achieved this goal. The book has a lot of original pictures taken from the author during her daily medical practice. It's an exceptional work that facilitates and simplifies the learning process; original clinical cases stimulate the medical thinking. Congratulations to the author for these amazing books written with great effort and passion. I strongly recommend to buy the both guides, I and II.
