5.0 out of 5 stars Great for the office, November 30, 2010
By 
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Essentials of Musculoskeletal Care 4th edition (Hardcover)
This book is an essential resource for any office. As a pediatrician I use this book at least once or twice a week. It's biggest competition is Up-To-Date but I find this easier to navigate and less ambiguous in regards to treatment/splinting/casting options.

Is he saying that this book is not as up to date?
The third edition was terrible [I have it] is this one enough better to justify the cost?

No--"Up-to-Date" is a subscription online service that allows one to quickly search for summary articles of a large variety of medical topics. It is often very helpful to me.
I believe what this author was suggesting was that the only other resource that has been comparable to this book was the "Up-to-Date" service, however they feel this book is easier to read and use (I agree).
