“Although this book is intended for surgical residents (and some may find it useful), it is most appropriate for third- and fourth-year medical students (such as those doing sub-internships). It would be a valuable addition to other books that are standard for this demographic (e.g., <B><I>Surgical Recall</I></B>, 6th edition, Blackbourne (Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2012).” (Doody’s, 21 March 2014)
“Surgery at a Glance deserves ongoing recommendation as it appears in an updated new fifth edition to provide students with a summary of a comprehensive lecture course in surgery. It's arranged in an 'at a glance' format, which provides quick visuals and easy keys to understanding, with key facts supplementing discussions of major surgical conditions. New chapters on Orthopaedics, updates on post-surgery management, and a website packed with supportive resources to the text makes for a volume filled with important insights any student will find important.” (Midwest Book Review, 1 December 2013)
