"I do not think it is an understatement to say that it is a revolutionary book. It is obviously written with integrated courses very much in mind and manages to integrate the basic sciences with clinical information very well.... Maybe above all things, this is a very practically orientated book and really attempts to mould the medical student in to a very good house officer."
The editors of Clinical Surgery are all renowed surgeons, teachers and academics in their respective fields. The lead editor, Sir Alfred Cushieri is the Head of the Surgery Deparment at Ninewells hospital and Teaching School in Dundee. Professor Grace and Dr Borley are the authors of Surgery At a Glance.
