This book makes sense out of the complext world of symptoms. It does this by revealing how a doctor thinks when faced with patients telling them their stories, that is, by ranking the possible diagnosis in terms of probability. For the first time in a popular medical guide, all the symptoms one might reasonably experience are put into perspective.
