Reviews

From the reviews:

"[T]he biographies make for enjoyable and easy reading. References are often provided, so those interested can learn even more about any given pioneer. The accompanying images of almost all the physicians add to this collection’s appeal. [This book] makes a quick and ready reference for anyone interested in the personages who laid the foundation and advanced the storied specialty of orthopedics." (Michael A. Franchetti, JAMA 2005;293(20):2537.)

"It is fascinating to read about the giants of the past, have their achievements brought before us and to gain an insight into their idiosyncrasies. It is an important work of reference, which should be on the shelves of every orthopaedic surgeon who shares an interest in the history of our art." (F. Horan, Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery 2005; 87-B(8):1167)

"Entries are listed in alphabetical order, with pictures of almost all of the people. Although each entry is about a specific surgeon, they often highlight fascinating connections between people and draw attention to intriguing facts and statements about the surgeons."
