"Principles and Practice of Surgery (6th edition) is a concise yet comprehensive source of general surgery aimed at the medical student who is seeking more than just the "generic knowledge" required as well as the junior surgical trainee who wants to consolidate their knowledge base. The sound and up-to-date structure of this edition, with each chapter written by an expert in the field, offers a nicely readable, beautifully illustrated reference. What is particularly appealing are the EBM (Evidence Base Medicine) boxes, which provide the reader with the much needed information in a bullet point format to compliment the text. This feature does not interfere with its readability; an almost unavoidable inconvenience that exists in medical literature."
