"This is superb value and a great revision for us all."
—Liam Flood, Journal of Laryngology and Otology, 2008
"This is unique among books of its size. It is a worthy successor to Hamilton Bailey's original, and it remains true to the spirit of that text. It has been brought completely up to date with this most recent edition. 4 Stars!"
—Carol EH Scott-Conner, University of Iowa Hospitals, Doody Publishing
"This is the sort of book that inspires people to study medicine ... I would heartily recommend this book to any medical student, and it is essential and fascinating reading for students aiming for a career in surgery."
—Ann-Louise Lowson, GKT Gazette
"beautifully illustrated with clear and descriptive colour photographs of a very high quality ... This book remains a useful reference for final-year surgical students and for first and second-year surgical trainees who are looking for a broad view of surgery prior to sitting membership examinations. There is no doubt that Bailey and Love provides exceptional background information for all of surgery in general. For these reasons, the book remains at the very forefront of surgical texts and I have no doubt that the 25th edition of Bailey and Love will prove as popular as its predecessors."
—Annals of The Royal College of Surgeons of England
