This book makes interesting reading and fills a definite need. It is generally excellent. There are a few minor points in technique that could be argued, but these do not detract from the value of the book. The use of photographs as visual aids is excellent, and the legends explain the principles involved in the subjects depicted. The author stresses the common errors in the application of plaster and how to avoid mistakes such as those causing pressure sores under the cast. The necessary armamentarium is well explained and well illustrated. This book is recommended for use as a reference in hospital plaster rooms. It is a good book for medical students and residents.
