Welcome to the Zebra Cards web site.

Zebra Cards is a book -- sort of. I wrote it, and the American College of Physicians published it. Zebra Cards was written for a professional medical audience. It's now in its second printing.

    About this Site[Top]
This site's main purpose is to keep the printed version of Zebra Cards up to date. It includes updated references and comments about each card. The site also includes one-click Medline searches for abstracts and articles that are similar to the articles cited in the book.

If you don't own a copy of Zebra Cards, or if you've never heard of it before, this website will give you an idea of what the book is all about. You can look at the book's table of contents, it's introduction, or a few sample cards.
