Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
From the reviews:

"[T]he biographies make for enjoyable and easy reading. References are often provided, so those interested can learn even more about any given pioneer. The accompanying images of almost all the physicians add to this collection’s appeal. [This book] makes a quick and ready reference for anyone interested in the personages who laid the foundation and advanced the storied specialty of orthopedics." (Michael A. Franchetti, JAMA 2005;293(20):2537.)

"It is fascinating to read about the giants of the past, have their achievements brought before us and to gain an insight into their idiosyncrasies. It is an important work of reference, which should be on the shelves of every orthopaedic surgeon who shares an interest in the history of our art." (F. Horan, Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery 2005; 87-B(8):1167)

"Entries are listed in alphabetical order, with pictures of almost all of the people. Although each entry is about a specific surgeon, they often highlight fascinating connections between people and draw attention to intriguing facts and statements about the surgeons." (Andy Roche, BMJ 2005;331:581)

"When I found out that this book was being published I was hoping that I would be able to read, in detail, about the lives and achievements of the most famous names in orthopaedics and trauma. I am pleased to say that this is the case. … The entries also draw attention to intriguing facts and statements about the surgeons. … will certainly make orthopaedic surgeons with an interest in the history of the specialty (which all should have) much more knowledgeable." (Andy Roche, British Medical Journal, September, 2005)

"Eponyms are still commonly used in orthopaedic surgery … . Mr. Mostofi has produced a true labour of love in which he has brought together the obituaries of the pioneers of our world … . It is fascinating to read about the giants of the past … . This book contains photographs and biographies of more than 250 great names. It is an important work of reference, which should be on the shelves of every orthopaedic surgeon … ." (F. Horan, Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery, Vol. 87 B (8), 2005)

"Who’s who in Orthopedics, edited by Seyed Behrooz Mostofi, has 10 contributors … . It presents an impressive array of 278 biographies of the giants of orthopedics … . The biographies are enlightening and entertaining … . Mostofi’s penchant for history is obvious, and the biographies make for enjoyable and easy reading. References are often provided … . deserves a place in any orthopedic library and makes a quick and ready reference for anyone interested in the personages … ." (Michael A. Franchetti, JAMA, Vol. 293 (20), May, 2005)
