Review quote

"... superb new edition ... has a thoroughly modem feel. Each chapter is written by recognised experts in the field, and the writing is clear and well structured. ... well illustrated with radiographs, coloured line diagrams and photographs. ... In short, this book encapsulates in one volume all that is required for a trainee surgeon approaching an examination in surgery in general and for a general surgeon whose practice crosses subspecialty boundaries." -Royal College of Surgeons England " ... extremely good and easy to read ... covers a huge amount of content, includes many cutting edge details that clinicians are currently using. This book is well-presented with many good diagrams and clinical pictures. Highly Commended." -2014 BMA Medical Book Awards "It is a modern, fresh and a well illustrated book that has not forgotten its illustrious roots and basic principles but is very much a 21st century textbook ... It certainly deserves to be used regularly, simply because of its huge depth, excellent coverage and ample colour illustrations." -Glycosmedia " represents a one-stop surgical reference book which should answer the vast majority of queries and issues... Overall this is a strong offering, maintaining the excellent tradition of a well established textbook which is modern, relevant and very useful." -Harry Brown, MD, in Doody's Review Service "This book can be strongly recommended for the clarity of its presentation and the high quality of its illustrations." -David J. Dries, MD, University of Minnesota Medical School for Doody's Review Service "From opening the first page I knew I would not be disappointed... an ideal book for any novice who would wish to get an understanding of what surgery entails. It would also be a book that any trainee or practising surgeon would get pleasure from reading ...[it is] a classic that has been edited with great skill and respect." -ANZ Journal of Surgeryshow more
