Review quote

From the reviews of the fourth edition: "This is the fourth edition of a compact, classic book on the essentials of surgical technique and anatomy, just as the title states. It is a very good, quick reference for common general surgical procedures. ... This will continue to be a good reference for general surgeons both during and after training. I will continue to refer to it ... . The concise format and the inclusion of a wide variety of procedures makes it very inviting." (Christine J. Waller, Doody's Book Reviews, March, 2014)
