A "quick-read" —the book can serve as
a last minute study aid or a general framework for learning
about the field of surgery, including a relevant review
of all relevant subspecialties. Unlike many other books,
General Surgery Review excludes controversial management
in order to present an easy-to-remember foundation of
knowledge. Thus, the book focuses on "the basics" to
provide the reader with a broad command of the field.
