The format of this comprehensive treatise on practically every conceivable disability about the knee joint is excellent. The paper is better than usual, and the selection of the type makes for easy reading. The author is to be commended for the many excellent drawings and the numerous reproductions of roentgenograms. Its size and weight make this book difficult to handle unless a supporting table is used. The book is well arranged, and each chapter is complete within itself. At the end of each chapter, the author has included an up-to-date bibliography. Although some orthopedists may not agree with the author's preference for some operative procedures, the author honestly states that they have been found best in his hands. He does present many alternative procedures and gives due credit for the authorship and origin of these procedures. This is an excellent reference book for students, residents, and orthopedists.
