I own the paper and kindle version, and use it on an iPad, Kindle Fire and Galaxy S3. In the kindle version, each "page" is actually a single scanned picture. This means you cannot highlight / annotate the text. It is also very slow to load. On the iPad, there is some technical error where the software will get into "load screen" loops; extremely annoying when trying to use the text as a reference. On the Kindle Fire and S3, the book is much slower to use than other books due to the size and use of images instead of text. You also cannot search the text.

Content is still great but the Kindle version is subpar.

Purchased as a personal reference, and as a visual aid in explaining things to patients who have questions about their problems. Just received the book early this morning, and began going through it. This book is excellent. I really like the fact that this is about orthopedics and only orthopedics. Previously I had used a set of the Netter flash cards for this purpose, but a colleague showed me this, and it was much better for our purposes. Unlike the flash cards, this is a handy "all in one" reference, and it is not cluttered up with information unrelated to my area of practice. Also, I can drop it in the pocket of my lab coat if I want to take it along. No cards to fumble through or misplace. If you are working in orthopedics, or planning to do so, I would recommend this book without reservation.

Format: Paperback
Like most people, I picked this one up during the 4th year of medical school to help me with orthopaedic rotations. After using netter's atlas extensively during the 1st year of medical school, I was a little concerned that the book would be filled with too many points that didn't relate to orthopaedics, even with the word "concise" in its title. I was pleasantly surprised, however, to find that the information in this book had very little superfluous information. In additional to pointing out relevant anatomy, the book did a fantastic job giving tid-bits of information about various orthopaedic conditions that are commonly encountered. Don't get me wrong, you would by no means be an expert on a topic after glancing at the clinical cliff notes of this book, but you at least understand the pathology and treatment behind certain conditions. Another helpful aspect of this book included tables that very clearly spelled out different muscles and their innervations. This came in handy when I was on hand surgical rotations, and several faculty commented that my knowledge of upper extremity anatomy was impressive. The only downside to this book is that it doesn't orient the reader to different surgical approaches. It makes a weak attempt, but many times I found myself guessing on what I was looking at on the surgical field. If you want your anatomy to apply to exactly what the surgeon views, I would recommend Hoppenfields surgical exposure book, which is an excellent companion to this one. Together, they make a great combination that can be used to learn orthopaedic anatomy. As a side note, I cannot say that this book would be a good choice for a beginning medical student. It really is geared toward teaching orthopaedic anatomy alone, and a medical student would miss out on a tremendous amount of anatomy by using this book as their atlas. Better pick another atlas unless you are using this one for its given purpose-to study orthopaedics.

This book is amazing and essential. The kindle edition is pretty poor. No search, links don't work, crashes the app constantly. You're better off with the hard copy.

This came recommended from a former Ortho preceptor. Good guide to carry around whether it is to look something up, or for a quick read between patients. But if you're looking at this, chances are you already knew that. Small enough to fit in a large white coat pocket. And, its Netter's, you know what to expect. You know you need it, just go ahead and add it to your cart.

Great book by the MAN Netter! Who else would have a picture of himself smoking a stogie in the intro to the basic anatomy book. Legendary.

Unfortunately, the image quality is POOR for retina display, especially my new baby MBP retina. PIXELATED!! Makes me reconsider buying any more e books from kindle/amazon, better off to get the pdf version from somewhere online = Not proprietary, more portable, and MUCH better resolution / text scaling for vector-based retina display!

Excellent basic anatomy text. As a PM&R resident I was looking for a concise yet thorough text and this is it. Great artwork, tables/charts and organization of information. Excellent resource for MSK.

This is the best book on orthopedic anatomy, but the Kindle version is very disappointing. Where to begin? First, the only hyperlink in the text is from the table of contents. There is no search option for a keyword and no hyperlink from the index. You literally have to flip through pages to find what your looking for. Which leads me to my second frustration. Each page is slow to open upon turning the page (on iPad3 and Kindle Fire), and too often the pages do not open at all causing you to exit and then restart the Kindle app to get it to work again. Third issue, you cannot zoom. This is not completely bad on the larger screen iPad, but on the smaller screens of the Kindle Fire and iPhone, not being able to zoom is just not practical unless you have 20/1 vision.

Amazon defers the problem back on the publisher with no interest in resolution. Until these huge issues are fixed, I would not recommend spending money on the digital version.
