The author, who is well known for his knowledge of surgery and his writing, has put together in simple readable form a wealth of material without wasted words. Amply illustrated and attractively printed, this book should appeal to practitioner, intern, resident, nurse, and student. It simplifies some aspects of surgical care that seem to have become at times unnecessarily complicated. While it will not replace textbooks, it should provide quick reference and should be regarded as a companion to more comprehensive textbooks.
