"The secret of success in a major text such as this is the quality of the editing which is masterly . . . The editors of the book are to be congratulated." - JBJS, review of the last edition
"It is difficult to find fault with this edition of Skeletal Trauma. Such a comprehensive resource can sometimes be unwieldy and rather intimidating to its readers, but not in this case. It remains a standard reference which should be part of the armamentarium of every orthopaedic department."
