This, the 4th edition of Schein's Common Sense Emergency Abdominal Surgery, builds on the reputation of the three previous editions. Already a worldwide benchmark, translated into half a dozen languages, this book guides surgical trainees logically through the minefields of assessment and management of acute surgical abdominal conditions. General surgery as a concept may have been overtaken in many parts of the world by the development of niche specialties, but the need for a cohort of generalists able to deal competently with common surgical emergencies has not gone away. If you recognise this need then this is the book for you! Tyro surgeons and experienced practitioners alike will benefit from the distilled wisdom contained in these pages. The direct, no nonsense, writing style, supported by entertaining cartoons, gives clear guidance while at the same time providing amusing insights into our collective surgical psyche. NOT a standard textbook. Buy it! You will not regret it. Some new editors and authors enhance the new edition. Almost all chapters have been revised to take account of new concepts and modern developments. New chapters have been added and some completely rewritten often with a new emphasis on the importance of a laparoscopic approach.'

This is written with short punchy chapters making it a very difficult book to put down." -- R A B Wood, Journal of the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh
"Since Mondors times in the forties of the last century there was no other book in surgery to be written so easy and witty..." -- Boris D Savchuk, World Journal of Surgery
By the end I was a total enthusiast... this is a text like no other I read... Unreservedly recommended to old and young and alike." -- M Winslet, Royal Free Hospital, London, Colorectal Disease
"The title describes this book perfectly. This is a no-nonsense approach to the sometimes very difficult situations in general surgery. The authors describe their experiences in tough situations of patient care for residents and young attendings... the historical quotes add a good amount of insight and interest. I have not come across another book like this... Focused on the real situations that surgeons come across, the book answers the questions that are not addressed in the major textbooks." -- Robert A Hanfland, Doodys Review Service
This book covers emergency abdominal surgery in a useful and interesting way. [It is] a small and handy book yet the coverage is wide. It would be of interest to any general surgeon and should certainly be read by surgical trainees. [It] allows mention of many things which would otherwise be excluded from a more rigidly structured work. I was also glad to be reminded of many things which I had known but forgotten. The writers clearly know what they are talking about. -- David Evans, Annals of the Royal College of Surgeons of England
