Bailey & Love's Short Practice of Surgery is one of the world's pre-eminent medical textbooks with worldwide sales of over one million copies. To keep the book at the forefront of the market, this new edition introduces several innovations based on findings from market research, while retaining those essential features that are the hallmark of the "Bailey & Love" style. The text presents a comprehensive coverage of general surgery, with new key information boxes in addition to core material. Extensive 4-color illustration reinforces clinical messages, and the book's famous aphorisms and biographies of prominent pioneers of surgery are entirely updated for the new edition. The book's readership has always represented a dilemma to classify; in India, Bailey and Love is used by undergraduate medical students, and by postgraduate MS candidates as a revision text; in the UK it is used by MRCS candidates. A new constituency will be formed by the FRCSInt examination being produced by the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh. All research carried out to date suggests that, as edited by Russell, Williams and Bulstrode, the book will continue to successfully bridge these readership groups.

Helpfully, each chapter includes learning objectives and key information boxes to add to the core text material. These features combined with a multitude of relevant colour photographs have resulted in a textbook that is pleasingly easy and enjoyable to read. As ever it will have a wide appeal to undergraduates, as a basic text for MCRS candidates through to those of us dipping in as a reference text.
