“The information in this book can help orthopedic residents quickly shine in conferences and in the operating room…This book is important and useful for the intended audience.”

 Samuel J. Chmell, MD, University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine, Doody’s Review Service

“While the focus is on medical research, it highlights ‘pivotal papers’ with respect to orthopaedic trauma and presents interesting reading in relation to trauma care and outcomes.  This is a book that could be picked up at any time and the reader could focus on an area of trauma that was of particular interest to them at the time.  As the complete reference for the given article is available, the reader can then choose to obtain the article to further expand their knowledge.”
- Rosemary Masterson, The International Journal of Orthopaedic and Trauma Nursing
