I grabbed this text last time I went perusing through my university’s medical library. I found the book to be broad in scope and quite similar in format to the larger Current Diagnosis and Lange review texts. Overall, it was enjoyable to read and would definitely serve as an outstanding reference for sports medicine gurus, ortho residents and of course medical student interested in ortho. The text assumes a thorough background in anatomy.
