It offers both core information regarding what the student needs to know about these specialties and an extensive series of cases with questions and answers that illustrate the thinking behind common everyday practice. The book offers a standardised approach to history taking and physical examination, and the elevant anatomy, highlighting the reasons for the different approaches within each specialty as required.

"Out of several undergraduate texts on musculoskeletal disease, this is both comprehensive and comprehensible and a valuable addition to departmental and students' personal libraries."

New Edited Book Winner at The Royal Society of Medicine & The Society of Authors' Medical Book Awards

"This book, edited by four physicians from the U.K., is the best comprehensive work I have seen on the musculoskeletal system for medical students. I highly recommend the U.K. book to all medical students, junior residents, and primary care physicians."

Doody Review Services: Edward Abraham, MD University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine

"This is a well presented text …. It is of considerable value to the orthopaedic nurse/ therapist, but because of its medical assessment and management approach, I would mainly recommend it to those working in specialist and advanced practice roles with a need for a deeper understanding of assessment and management issues."
