This textbook is coauthored by two hand surgeons who individually have made relevant and unique contributions to the understanding of hand surgery anatomy during their careers. Their collaboration has produced a convenient stand-alone comprehensive reference resource consisting of a collection of material from multiple texts and journals.The textbook is organized into two main sections. The first, entitled "Systems Anatomy," consists of four chapters that separate the anatomy into skeletal, muscle, nerve, and vascular systems. The chapter on muscle anatomy includes a wonderful appendix that summarizes the origin, insertion, action, and innervations of all of the muscles of the upper extremity. These four pages will probably be cherished and carried around by every hand fellow for years to come. The chapter on vascular systems includes a brief description of vascularized bone grafts; however, illustrations are omitted and there is no description of the intercompartmental supraretinacular arterial supply, which one would expect to find here.
