I checked this book out of the library first to see if I liked it and soon decided to get a copy of my own. It is a very good book for beginners. It kept my attention; not a sleeper. Within each chapter there is a "clinical problem", anatomy, technique , pathology, pitfalls, and "where else to look" section, and they are all introduced with key words for the chapter, sonogram abbreviations and relevant lab values.
There are some very good diagrams in the book, but not enough sonography pictures, so you will need to use it with other books or internet resources.
The book covers a wide range of ultrasound topics, from abdominal to OB-GYN, to small parts, vascular and even joint problems. The sequence of the chapters seems somewhat random.
It obviously won't be the only book you will learn from, but it is a very user friendly, easy to read book.
