2.0 out of 5 stars Great book, terrible approach to book changes including 32 "web only chapters", December 13, 2013
This is a fantastic book, hands down... but totally unacceptable "web only chapters" and no support to use the web features on the iPad.

Lets get frank - this book is awesome for a surgery resident. Great photos, great descriptions - can always easily find the "know thing" things as a review for a case or even between cases. This edition continues the old books tradition and adds more content... good content... with a catch

The catches:
1) Continues the inability to use the LWW website on the iphone/ipad and read the book on the iPad
2) 32 (YES 32 of the 134 chapters - almost 25% of the book) are "web only chapters". These are PDF's you can view by clicking on the chapter link in the ebook. The whole purpose of getting the book was to have it in paper to bring around without having to have other access. I am a very techy person and would prefer to view the whole book on the iPad and computer but accept a book as well. Now I cannot have either as a single but need to have both to read the whole book.

I don't think it's very acceptable to print a book and sell it and make 25% of the content online only without providing easy access to read the entire book online in a digital format that is commonly used. The ideal book is able to be read on the iPad/iOS (the most commonly used device by medical professionals) and LWW has still yet to provide this.

Disappointed with this version but LWW could easily turn this around and make it one of the best surgery resources!

Update 11/4/2014:
Tried to access one of the "eChapters" and the links now do not work, so you lose all access to those chapters!

1.0 out of 5 stars Nice try but material is completely different, August 24, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The bags are not canvas as described by "Natural Canvas Bag". The material is a plastic type material. This is definitely a cheap feeling material and makes lots of sounds. This also looks significantly different than the photo, but that is obvious because the material in the photo looks completely different


No Title Available

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for Rock Climbing Training!, February 26, 2008
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I purchased the X-Firm putty for myself to train for rock climbing. This is awesome stuff. I had used the Firm Power-Putty and it was not firm enough. This X-Firm is probably 20% harder than that (if you know how much that means!)
