The Life of Sir Robert Jones.

Am J Dis Child. 1934;48(3):707. doi:10.1001/archpedi.1934.01960160229020

This delightful biography of the most eminent of British orthopedic surgeons is written by his son-in-law. It depicts the life of a man who made an eminent success without much of an early struggle. Sir Robert Jones was a great organizer and a great humanitarian, as well as a great orthopedic surgeon. He was fortunate in that his gifts and experience were at their full maturity when they were most needed, that is, at the time of the World War. The book gives the impression of a man not only great in work, but thoroughly enjoying life. It is not a critical biography, but a narrative one.
