From the book reviews:
This is a comprehensive historical review in Orthopaedics related to both conservative and surgical treatments of extremity, spine, foot, & ankle pathologies. Radiographs, charts, and line drawings illustrate the text well. This is an excellent book for residents, fellows, orthopaedic surgeons, neurosurgeons, and historians . I give this book my highest rating amongst orthopaedics books. (Joseph J. Grenier, Amazon.com, July, 2014)
