The new edition of this informal, almost conversational presentation of exposures of the extremities is interesting. The author says what he wants to say in the way he wants to say it. If he finds it useful to use crutches or similes, he does so. Although many might disapprove of his use of teaching aids, there is much to be said in its favor. Such terms as "the half-sleeve," "loop-holes," "satellites," and "the stripping angle" are used abundantly. The author holds no brief for any terminology, but believes that the so-called new, old, and Basle each has its own points of merit. The book is well illustrated with figures that complement the author's style of writing. The print is large and readable and the paper excellent. This book can be recommended to anyone interested in the anatomy and surgery of the extremities.
