This handbook is a compilation of 1,000 multiple-choice questions covering all aspects of trauma surgery. Rather than just another question-and-answer book, it offers brief explanations and good references in addition to the answers to the questions. It is thorough, clear, and concise. The reference list represents both text and journal article input; therefore, it is reasonably current. The material includes general management, specific syndromes, and predictable complications.
This book can function as an excellent review for any individual taking a surgical board examination, as well as an update for all levels of surgeons treating the multiple trauma patient. It is a fine method of self-assessment and learning. It is currently worth the price suggested.
