Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: William D. McMillan, MD (Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine)
Description: This companion handbook is a portable synopsis that shares similar structure and breadth of topic with the larger book.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide house officers and medical students with a portable reference for basic surgical questions when larger reference texts are unavailable. It is not meant to be comprehensive in its scope or depth of information.
Audience: The book is most appropriate for students in surgical clerkships or for junior house officers. Most upper level residents and practicing surgeons will not find it helpful in answering more subtle questions.
Features: The handbook is small and light enough to fit in a lab coat pocket. It has a water-resistant cover and thick, durable pages. The index is too superficial, a factor that severely impairs the book's usefulness as a quick reference. Some chapters are in outline format and are easy to skim, but most are written text and more difficult to read selectively.
Assessment: This a durable, portable reference containing answers to basic surgical questions, and it will be helpful to medical students and junior house officers. Its utility as a quick reference is somewhat diminished by a limited index and primarily textual format.
