The book is aimed primarily at clinical undergraduate medical students undertaking their surgical attachment and revising for finals. It follows the familiar easy-to-use at a Glance format with each topic presented as a double-page spread with clear mind-map illustrations and key facts encapsulating all that students need to know. The chapter list is divided into clinical presentations followed by major surgical conditions.
