Editorial Reviews

Review

From the reviews of the second edition:

"This book covers emergency abdominal surgery in a useful and interesting way. … a small and handy book yet the coverage is wide. It would be of interest to any general surgeon and should certainly be read by surgical trainees. … allows mention of many things which would otherwise be excluded from a more rigidly structured work. … I was also glad to be reminded of many things which I had known but forgotten. The writers clearly know what they are talking about." (David Evans, Annals of the Royal College of Surgeons of England, Vol. 87, 2005)

"The book covers every aspect of emergency abdominal surgery … . a source of wisdom for the surgical trainee. But also a senior surgeon will enjoy reading this book, as it casts a different light … . It is a great book, full of everyday knowledge and offers a straightforward approach to common clinical problems. It should be compulsatory reading for every surgical trainee, and also sit on the shelve next to the classics of every surgeon involved in abdominal emergency surgery." (Dr. Jan Dewaele, Acta Chirurgica Belgica, Vol. 105 (2), 2005)

I am about to end my chief year in general surgery residency - my copy of the first edition shows the wear of half a dozen total read throughs and probably hundreds of referencings. Newest edition is equally good. For the last 3 years I have given this book to our interns if they finish their surgical internship. And I've paid for this myself - if you know how little residents get paid you will know how important I think it is. If you are in surgical training DO NOT WAIT ANOTHER DAY BEFORE YOU BUY THIS BOOK. I do agree with another reviewer who thought a bit of cool surgical technique would have been good too. But, all in all, best, most useful little book on surgery ever. Nuff said.

Format: Paperback
this is a fine book in the tradition of "guides to being on call" - or maybe the "guide to the perplexed". I like the straightforward get to the point style, and the directness of the book makes this a useful book to have handy when confronted with some of the emergency surgery problems. I would only say it could have had a bit more on surgical technique, and one or two references would have been useful (instead there was almost a militant insistence on as few as possible). But I would recommend it for any resident who is on call, and I find it useful as a staff sugeon as well.
