This book, to say the least, is an immense contribution to the effort of saving the lives trauma patients in hospitals and other health care centers worldwide. Preventive actions on a large-scale basis by governments would contribute to probably tens (or hundreds) of thousands more lives saved. (Bizindia, Jan 2013)

This book is in greater depth than i need as a paramedic but provides really clear insight into ED management of the severely injured patient, excellent further reading.
