"There are a number of foundational orthopaedic texts on the market but none that is blessed with the classic Netter drawings we all love. The quality of the chapters is excellent and informative. The Netter illustrations will likely make this book a keepsake for students and primary care providers who do not go into orthopaedics but want to keep an orthopaedic basic reference on their desk in the future." - Doody's Book Review Service
