Reviewers Love It!
Guaranteed to make you laugh out loud ... a good gift for friends and foes alike.
Has given me more fun at the bedside and at rounds than I have had in a long time. ... I recommend this book to all clinical teachers.

Insightful, delightful ... hours of intellectually satisfying entertainment.
Great collection of rare differentials. Really impacted the way I practice and think. Must have for all internists.
About the Book
When you hear hoofbeats behind you, don't expect to see a zebra.
-- Theodore E. Woodward, MD (±)
Zebra Cards is about patients who surprise us.
It's about listening to the patient, looking at the patient, and knowing that the human body is subtle in its wiles.
It's an inoculation against clinical hubris and impatience.
Each of the 200 cards in Zebra Cards presents a clinical observation on the front, and on the back supplies a differential diagnosis, a short but cogent discussion, and references.
