    Published Reviews "I found this book to be very well organized and easy to read. The concepts were presented so that both students and seasoned clinicians would understand them and be able to apply them to practice.
    It achives its goal of helping students to focus on the patient and to realize that they have many and varied transferable skills they can draw upon in any situation.
    This text is a must-have in any orthopedic clinic."
