The previous edition won first Prize (Surgery category) at the BMA Awards 2005. The judges' comment: 'A comprehensive and attractively presented 4-colour textbook of surgery aimed primarily at medical students but also of use to junior doctors and surgical technicians. The book has two key features: firstly, it provides students with coverage of every aspect of surgery; secondly, it has been designed and written to be the 'surgical companion' to Kumar & Clark's "Clinical Medicine". This new edition will also offer an online version to all purchasers of the book - the first surgical textbook in the UK to make an electronic version available'.show more
