This review guide of 36 chapters effectively uses a problem-based approach to fulfill its role as a review guide for fourth-year medical students, house officers, and even practicing surgeons. This review is not suited for a primary reference, and readers should have a reasonable grasp of general surgery, having at least read one of the fundamental surgical texts before using this book as a recall aid. Because the authors are principally surgical trainees or young practicing surgeons, information is presented in straightforward, concise manner.
