This book is a real classic in the field of skeletal roentgenology. Dr. Zimmer, always preserving the Köhler tradition, has ably rewritten and augmented the 10th edition. The fact that this is the 10th edition and that there are translations into French, Spanish, and Italian indicates the wide significance of this work. It is difficult to conceive of any normal or variant of normal pertinent to the skeletal system that is not included here. All the conditions are well illustrated, with concise captions. The bibliography has been augmented by Dr. Case to include appropriate references' to English-language periodicals. This book is a joy not only to the radiologist but also to any physician, particularly the orthopedist, interested in trauma and diseases of the skeletal system. The basic and fundamental importance of the information so completely compiled in this work cannot be overemphasized and makes the book an essential reference work
