This bright and colourful book is ideal for medical students learning the essentials of rheumatology, orthopaedics and trauma over a short time-frame. The book is literally `At a Glance' and can also be used a set of revision notes. The book is useful clinically, covering examination of the leg, arm, spine and rheumatological assessment. The diagrams and pictures enhance the text and make the book a pleasure to read.

An excellent overview of what is often a very confusing area and really good for revision. You'd probably want another textbook as well though during any clinical attachments in this area as information is quite basic.

A fun read dispensing with plenty of helpful points and comments to assuage any anxieties you have about the musculo-skeletal system.

Look out for:

1. Splendid diagrams that interplay with accompanying text. After reading text on opposite page, they serve as a reminder of what you have read, and serve well as an aide-memoire. Especially good when the pictures create their own narrative with presentations, diagnosis, treatment etc.

2. Concise and succinct explanations. Not too over-loaded with information, yet include a lot of material.

3. Helpful 'Tips' summary boxes at end of each chapter.

4. Practice case-based questions at end revise material covered in book.

This book book manages to be both concise and comprehensive. The clear text, which covers all of the most important orthopaedic and rheumatological conditions that a medical student is likely to be asked about, is supported by full-colour illustrations.

Strongly recommended.
