The third edition of Postgraduate Orthopaedics has been fully updated, revised and expanded to meet the challenges of a continually changing exam format, providing detailed core orthopaedic knowledge and insight into tactics and pre-exam planning to increase a candidate's chance of success. Written by a core of authors chosen specifically for their knowledge of the key factors for exam success, this edition includes more illustrations and diagrams and additional exam-focused material for the trickier areas of the syllabus. The trauma chapter has been separated into four distinct sections to improve the overall trauma content. The book also includes a dedicated chapter on what books to read, reflecting the fact that this area has become more complicated in recent years, and an applied basic science chapter, which focuses on basic science viva questions in detail. This guide continues to evolve and has established itself as the definitive text for the FRCS (Tr & Orth) exam.

p”Ein auch heute noch bedeutsamer Klassiker“ Daily Express Sind wir Marionetten unserer Gene? Nach Richard Dawkins ́ vor über 30 Jahren entworfener und heute noch immer provozierender These steuern und dirigieren unsere von Generation zu Generation weitergegebenen Gene uns, um sich selbst zu erhalten. Alle biologischen Organismen dienen somit vor allem dem Überleben und der Unsterblichkeit der Erbanlagen und sind letztlich nur die "Einweg-Behälter" der "egoistischen" Gene. Sind wir Menschen also unserem Gen-Schicksal hilflos ausgeliefert? Dawkins bestreitet dies und macht uns Hoffnung: Seiner Meinung nach sind wir nämlich die einzige Spezies mit der Chance, gegen ihr genetisches Schicksal anzukämpfen.
