This book not only is the most unique and comprehensive guide to the operative management of penetrating trauma to date, but also represents a highly significant contribution to surgical education and training. Advanced Trauma Operative Management (ATOM): Surgical Strategies for Penetrating Trauma, both the book and the course, is the brainchild of editor Lenworth M. Jacobs, who has distinguished himself as one of the giants and trailblazers in trauma surgery and surgical education. The 53 contributors to the 7 chapters in this multimedia production include the associate editors, staff surgeons, and surgical colleagues of Dr Jacobs as well as many world-renowned experts (“master surgeons”) in trauma surgery. Thus, the reader not only is afforded ample opportunity to benefit from clear and concise presentations of the latest evidence-based trauma management, but also is provided with the personal wisdom of the master trauma surgeons, gained through decades of their combined experience. The insights that the reader gains from this special and intimate information are often referred to as “pearls” and add great strength and extraordinary value to this teaching instrument.
