It is considered to be the Best book for surgery for MBBS. The 27th edition is less bulky and excludes some unimportant things (tables, epidemiological facts etc ) and is more colourful and attractive. Language is very easy to understand. If you are a surgery aspirant, this is the best book for surgery. Not at all like other famous bigger books with small font and endless literature which is not actionable and is low yield. But surgery steps are not given for most of surgeries, so you will have to refer to some operative surgery books for surgical steps.
