"The book is well presented and authoritative and encompasses 66 chapters of 784 pages with additional online content which includes 55 PowerPoint presentations and 27 videos...the online content was simple both to activate and to use... Total Burn Care remains encyclopedic in its content with numerous chapters detailing the in-depth theory of most of subjects relevant to burn care- from nutrition to hematology, surgical technique to epidemiology...Overall, Total Burn Care in its fourth edition is an excellent text- certainly the most comprehensive available today - and I would recommend this as the first choice for the library or book shelf of those involved in burn care."
