"Basics in Hip and Knee Arthroplasty" sets itself a few well-articulated goals. Bringing together a string of rare pearls and valuable insights learned through a lifetime dedicated to teaching to help the reader excel at the art of adult reconstruction can be termed as one of the important goals. Prof. Vaidya, with his talented contributors, has been able to meet all the goals he has set for the publication. I will personally keep my copy close by at all times.
