'Most trauma textbooks are written from a surgical perspective. Trauma: A Comprehensive Emergency Medicine Approach stands apart in that it is aimed toward practising emergency physicians, residents, nurses, and nurse practitioners, as well as internists and family physicians ... The book is a delight to read. The editors are to be commended for maintaining a consistent style, language, and organization across the chapters. The writing is clear and concise, and the chapter lengths are digestible; with few exceptions, each chapter can easily be read in 30 to 45 minutes.' Journal of the American Medical Association
