This small textbook of surgery is amazingly informative. Essentially it is divided into two parts, anatomy of the normal and anatomy of the abnormal. There are numerous simple illustrations which are schematic and readily grasped. It contains several tabular outlines of anatomic relationships and measurements. Bibliographic references are presented as footnotes. This is a genuinely refreshing book, highly commendable for ready anatomic review.
