I bought this to keep it my white coat. I haven't taken PM&R boards yet, but other residents swear that you will pass your boards by just memorizing this book! I can't attest to the validity of that statement, but it definitely highlights how other PM&R residents feel about it. Highly recommended.
  • Der Bat
Working with the acute physical rehab population, this fantastic book came well recommended. Easy read. Hoping they come up with a more recent publication as this is a bit old...But generally, very good useful book.
  • Hilarious Kangaroo
This book is very good if you are PGY1-4. Once you hit PGY5, I think that the information seems limited. So buy it if you fit the early training bill.
Pro: very diverse topic range, even has a table at the back for opiod conversion which I sometimes need to check
Cons: Kinda basic once you get late in your training and early practice. Taller than needed... wasted empty blank space at the bottom of the pages make it harder to put into pocket. No new edition.

I bought this for my PM&R rotation. It's a good, small reference to keep around in your coat. It is a good way to review the PM&R basics and it does cover a lot of the major issues. Sections on spasticity, electrodiagnosis, gait, prosthetics, TBI, SCI, etc. and a section at the end for drugs. The only negative is it's a little pricey and there were some times that the information I was looking for wasn't in there. Also because it's so thin, and a paperback, it's easy to get banged up. Overall I would recommend it.

no where in the description it said that. If I had known that I probably won't have bought this book, and have gotten a more recent edition. having said that, the service was promt, and got it when it was promised. seller needs to disclose the publication date.

There are a few reasons to get this book:

1) You are a medical student and have many rotations and limited money and do not know if you are going in to PM&R yet.

2) You are a resident and need to have a small book that will fit in your pocket. You can read a few pages while waiting for your attending to get off the phone or back from coffee :)

3) You are an attending who tends to focus in one area and needs a refresher in another area of rehab.

4) You are a PT, OT, PA, nurse, or advanced practice nurse who wants to review more information in a affordable book with a concise format.

The book is really small (and so is the printing). I have carried this book pretty much since my PGY-4 year. I have probably read it 10 times by now in 1-2 page bursts. It fits in my pocket about as well as my PDA.

A book this abbreviated is very difficult to use as a PRIMARY study guide. There are significant areas not discussed. However, the material that is covered is very well abstracted from longer books and articles. It reads like someone took great notes from different sources and bound them together. Additionally, there are several good tables in the book that I refer to regularly.

Overall, this book has helped me tremendously as a resident and I have been recommending it for years. A few people get disgruntled that it is so abbreviated, but they still carry it in their pocket!

A lot of people i know crammed for either or both the written and oral Rehab boards using this book, and they said it definitely packs the most punch for the time and money. It is well written, acurate (very evidence-based and highly referenced). It contain so much info packed into a concise package, so maybe the text could be a little too small for some older docs or someone with bad near-vision. It's not meant for reading for too long due to eye strain, but maybe a chapter or 2 at a time over 10-15 minutes while on call. The book is mostly focused for residents and fellows, but I imagine could be useful as a quick pocket reference for attendings as well. A must for those working in rehab, but not formally trained as a physiatrist as well, such as NPs, PAs, PTs, etc. Hopefully this book will be updated in the next few years. While it is up to date for the date of publication (2003), containing lots of references from the 2000's, it would be great for the next generation of residents to have a book with refs from the 2003-2006 (or later) era as well, since evidence-based information is now at such a premium.
I have been using the preliminary Silver edition of Choi et al's PM&R Pocketpedia for over 3 years now and I still refer to this book daily in my clinical duties. The published version improves on the Silver edition and provides concise, quick reference for everyday PM&R needs. I would say that this book changed my life, since I carry the Silver edition everywhere and anywhere--I had it with me during my honeymoon. I dare anyone to carry Braddom or DeLisa with them. The only drawback to the published edition over the Silver preliminary version is its size--the Black cover version simply does not fit into my shirt pocket. Desite this, PM&R Pocketpedia is by far the best $25 I have spent in my brief career as a PM&R doc. I expect that this will be one in a series of PM&R-related Pocketpedia.
