This is an excellent book describing the anatomical basis for general surgical operations. It is clearly written and the majority of the diagrams are excellent. Being written by surgeons it accentuates the important aspects of applied anatomy, giving sound practical advice. I would recommend it to those studying for the intercollegiate speciality examination in general surgery. More experienced surgeons will also find it useful as a source of reference that clearly demonstrates the practical application of anatomy to the art of surgery.
