"This third edition of Fracture Management For Primary Care, published 8 years after the second, has been significantly enhanced while maintaining its basic framework. With the continuing need for primary care physicians to assume the central role in the contemporary and anticipated models of health care delivery, this book is an excellent and timely addition. ... The stated aim of Fracture Management for Primary Care is 'to produce a practical user-friendly book that helps clinicians manage their patients who have fractures'. This 384-page book is edited by experienced family physicians, with contributions from 8 other family physicians. ...The description in the opening chapter of general principles of fracture care provides a well-thought-out, well-organized basic framework to apply to care of the specific fractures described in the subsequent chapters. The guidelines for when to refer a patient to an orthopedic surgeon are explicitly presented. Each chapter is organized in a consistent manner. ... (This) overall organization and consistency is perhaps the most useful feature in a book that lends itself to quick, practical, readable, and easy access in day-to-day practice. The book is full of radiographic images and line drawings related to almost all of the fractures described. ... Although the book is exceedingly practical and concise, it provides sufficient coverage of the breadth of the fractures and related problems seen in primary care. In this context, the breadth and depth of topics covered are exemplified by reviews regarding epiphyseal fractures, pediatric scaphoid fractures, distal clavicular fractures, scapular fractures, spine fractures, nontraumatic osteoporotic fractures, complex regional pain syndrome, and facial and skull fractures." -Dilip R. Patel, MD, Kalamazoo Center for Medical Studies, Michigan State University College of Human Medicine, Kalamazoo; JAMA

Would welcome any factual corrections and will edit my review accordingly.
For a more comprehensive, and much larger, text on fractures, with some additional attention to mechanisms of injury and very helpful sketches, I recommend Connolly's Fractures and Dislocations: Closed Management. Though it is getting pretty old in its current edition, the basics of how people get hurt and how to manage them non-operatively, haven't changed all that much.
For a more broad based text on orthopedic care, with only brief attention to fractures, it's hard to go wrong with Essentials of Musculoskeletal Care.
I read about half of entire book. Sentence was written in concise style and easy to get,also chapter was well systemized so that you can read it very fast with no miss. 'Anatomic consideration' part that always appear first of each chapter is really brilliant and fascinating. Surely I'm already very familliar with musculoskeletal anatomy, but this book gives me additional something. Figures or illustrates inserted was painted faithfully. No coarsness. Image guality is excellent, too.
'Indication of Orthopedic referral' part is maybe the pearl of this book and the reason many primary care doctor want this book. Yes, also this part was well made. Clearly, you can get to know in a min whether you should transfer a patient or not.
'Treatment' part is enough to make you a competent and sincere doctor, although it takes no long time to read it up
Treatment option is up to dated. For example writters know that ICNB or Epidural block is help ful in the case of rib fracture. And 'treatment of Spondylolysis' part makes it more reliable. (Some books are tend to be too sure about controversial facts)
It's well made and recommandable but not huge. I mean that I think abundunt US or MRI images are out of this book.
This book is based on plain image. Someone could feel something lacking cause these days US is spreading it's field in Muskuloskeletal diagnosis. I also love US, but look at the 'Bianchi book' ! I guess writter didn't want to weigh heavy pressure on your shoulder. This book should be fast, clear and concise.
I use point-of-care online references like Essential Evidence Plus or DynaMed for my routine practice, but for fractures this is what I reach for. If they only made it as an iPhone app . . .
I was a fan of the first edition; it helped me decide which injuries to refer and helped me successfully manage others myself. I recommended it to others and bought the second edition, which gets used a lot in our clinic.
So far, the third edition in kindle form looks good; it appears to be as user-friendly as the print version.
