"The editors have produced a powerful source of knowledge that is easy to use and quite satisfying. Their book ushers readers through 52 plastic surgery cases and details the logical manner in which to objectively evaluate, ponder, and solve problems that each presents....The recognized experts who contribute to this book have translated complex subjects into an erudite syllabus that can be read and understood by a multitude of readers in plastic surgery, including students, residents, and recently trained and veteran plastic surgeons....Reading this book is an enjoyable experience. How much better can learning be than to have fun, test one's clinical acumen, and take away a fund of knowledge? 3 Stars."--Doody's Review Service
