User’s Review:

“This is a very unique reference that will be a valued companion for primary care physicians who care for patients with musculoskeletal injuries, emergency room physicians, residents in training, and even orthopedic subspecialists who are taking general trauma call and want to double check that they are doing the right thing. It is a worthy addition to the literature and would be a great book to have in the emergency room, athletic training room, or urgent care center.” (Mark R. Hutchinson, Doody’s Book Reviews, April, 2017)
