    New Edited Book Winner at The Royal Society of Medicine &The Society of Authors’ Medical Book Awards
    “Out of several undergraduate texts on musculoskeletal disease, this is both comprehensive and comprehensible and a valuable addition to departmental and students’ personal libraries.”

    "This book is the best comprehensive work I have seen on the musculoskeletal system for medical students. I highly recommend the book to all medical students, junior residents, and primary care physicians."
    Edward Abraham, MD(University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine), Doody Enterprises, Inc. Nov 2008

    ''While there can be no doubting from its language that this is a book for students and professionals, the language in this book is nevertheless straightforward, relatively jargon-free, and with most terms well-explained. The good editing here means that, while many chapters are written by different contributors, the overall effect is seamless. In terms of its presentation, ‘Textbook’ is striking to look at, making use of bright colours throughout, which conveniently correlate with the useful referencing system.''
    Amy Redwood

    The book is concise and clearly written, but at the same time gives a good depth of information.It is clear to see that this book has been written by experts in their fields, and has been edited so that the formatting throughout the book is coherent and logical in nature. The use of diagrams and tables helps to highlight the most relevant points making it enjoyable to read and enhances the learning experience.''
