Chapters on calcaneal talar fractures are very well done...organization of the book is deceptively simple...delivers several important messages...that young surgeons can use to maximize their care of patients...highly [recommended].'' --Doody's Notes

"A helpful resource for the physical therapist who wishes to learn more about the surgical management of these disorders or who desires a manual with diagrams that are simple enough for patient education. It would be...useful to an orthopedic or podiatric surgeon who might find it to be an excellent pocket reference or review guide as well as a patient education tool."--Physical Therapy
