'It was fantastic. Images were so helpful. We found this more useful than videos.' Dr Joseph Galante, UC Davis Department of Surgery
'The atlas is organized according to anatomic regions. Clinical challenges, operative approaches, and relevant anatomy are presented in a sequential, easy-to-understand fashion. The text is organized into bullet points, which facilitates rapid absorption of important lessons. Most important are the high-quality color photographs and multicolor illustrations based on performance of procedures using fresh, perfused, and ventilated human cadavers at the University of Southern California Fresh Tissue Dissection Lab, one of the important facilities of its kind in the world. The overall approach to the material is similar to that of the first edition ... This is a worthy update of the original edition. The number and quality of illustrations and the concise text are much improved.' David J. Dries, Doody's Book Review Service
