From the reviews:

"This is the first volume of a two-volume set of books intended to be a comprehensive reference for burn injury and related problems managed in burn centers. It provides a state-of-the-art presentation on early burn management. Senior trainees and practitioners in general and plastic surgery are an appropriate audience for this work coming from major burn centers in the U.S. and Europe. ... This is a worthy general update for practitioners." (David J. Dries, Doody's Review Service, September, 2012)
