#ICEicle: “Very Short Introductions” the Oxford Book Series

Oxford Press’s concise, well-written book series on a range of topics from ‘Accounting’ to ‘World Music’ is perfect for the busy Clinician Educator.

Each booklet occupies the sweet spot between a long review article and a textbook.  Most books require a (very) short evening to complete.  (Ok… so maybe as an emergency physician I have the attention span of a small dog hyped up on methamphetamine, hence my appreciation of this truncated format.)

At ~ $6 CDN for the Kindle version, there is rarely buyer or reader remorse.  If you don’t like it, put it down.  It only costs the equivalent of a lactose-free, skinny, no whip, cinnamon dolce, venti, latte. (Details about this drug of choice for a future ICEicle)
