Average Rating 

 "This is not an indications book; it is a how-to book, akin to a cookbook, and the recipes are thorough and very instructive. Conveniently, it includes access to the complete contents online. The color photographs and diagrams as well as the x-ray images are particularly noteworthy."

"This is a necessary component of the academic orthopedic surgical library. The online access capability will help residents prepare for participating in a particular trauma operation."
