In this book the authors present in concise form what they consider the best accepted opinions in modern surgical practice of an everyday as contrasted to a special character. The presentation is brief and dogmatic, focusing attention on essentials in diagnosis and treatment. Stress is laid on minor technical procedures. There is no prolonged discussion of etiology, pathology or even varieties of treatment. Entire subjects are covered frequently in one or two brief sentences. The material is decidedly accurate and is presented in clearcut manner. The book covers the entire field of general surgery with the exception of gynecology and diseases of the eye, ear, nose and throat. It will be useful to the general practitioner who is confronted with an occasional surgical problem in the management of which he may require guidance.
