This book is a fair synopsis of orthopedic surgery and covers most of the problems as well as they could be covered in a synopsis. It is intended for senior undergraduates, but there seems to be material missing which would be useful to medical students. In some instances the dissertations are a bit lengthy. Often there is too much emphasis on some subjects and not enough on others; for instance, too much discussion about ruptured disks with little about the other causes of backache. In general the book could be used as a lecture guide for students if it were integrated with the proper references to other books. It would be more valuable if there were a complete bibliography covering references to all conditions mentioned in the book. It is unfortunate that a book of this type has practically no reference to other than British authors.
