Sabiston Textbook of Surgery has a new look since the 16th edition, published three years ago.1 The surrealistic cover design introduces a new interior color-scheme that highlights pages, color-codes the sections of the book, and greatly embellishes the illustrations.

The accompanying CD-ROM, an incredible feature, contains every figure, table, and photograph in the text and permits ready insertion of them into a PowerPoint presentation. Recently, I noticed at the weekly surgical resident-staff conference slides accompanying patient presentations with the notice “Elsevier copyright 2004” from the Sabiston CD-ROM. I spent a couple of enjoyable hours that afternoon experimenting with the search procedures and developing my own PowerPoint presentations on various clinical and basic science topics. The CD is an extraordinary plus for the resident or attending physician preparing a lecture or seeking visual aids for presenting a patient at conference.
