You find a book that is a wealth of valuable, and often hard to acquire information. Written by people with obvious passion and heavily interlaced with illustrations, photographs, charts, and figures, the book appeals to surgeons, researchers, developers, even to the casual engineer. It is a veritable treasure trove of well laid out knowledge, and serves as a weighty reference volume as much as it does an educational read. In part, due to the sheer comprehensiveness of its coverage of the subject.

The reader is introduced to various facets of upper limb amputations and their clinical management in both children and adults. The authors from Canada, USA and Great Britain are well known practitioners, academics and researchers in the field. The book has over 130 illustrations and contains an extensive bibliography.
