Books

The integration of written text, modern technology, social networking and the internet is essential to disseminate high quality educational material. The Life in the Fast Lane team author a number of textbooks which are undergoing revision at present and will be ready for publication at the end of 2010.

However, with the advent of high speed communication methods the ‘hand held textbook’ should no longer be seen as an isolated information silo – but more as a portable aide-mémoire. On Life in the Fast lane we aim to provide an online updatable repository of additional information for each of the textbook chapters such as medical images, online references, clinical questions, conundrums and further reading pertinent to each textbook chapter.
