"The book is well organized into many practical sections. The overwhelming strength of this book is that it provides a succinct reference for a broad variety of hand complaints. As a teaching faculty in a busy emergency medicine residency, I consider this a good introductory reference book for my residents. I believe this is a valuable book for its succinctness, its organization, and scope of acute hand complaints... it is affordable, and it should find a welcome place in any emergency department reference library."
