Quotes, Reviews or Testimonials

"Simply put, this is an excellent book. While I am somewhat of a bibliophile, I think that all surgical residents should have a book of this genre to use during their residency. It provides the cornerstone of surgical education. Its breadth and inclusiveness keep it relevant throughout training and into the early years of practice."
