It has always hit my mind to have a uniform description of fractures preoperatively so as to transmit proper information in discharge papers as well as in clinical meeting among colleagues. The need for a handy reference book for such an endeavor is lacking. “Handbook of Fracture Classification” written by “Mukul Mohindra and Anish Agrawalla,” has excellently depicted highly informative classification of fractures which is beneficial for the clinicians in practice as well as postgraduate students. Classifications have been effectively supported by good diagrams which enable to understand fracture configurations. There are figures, tables, three-dimensional images specially useful in understanding pelvic fractures. I think it is a boon to the postgraduate students appearing for various examinations including MS, DNB, and D Orth to just go through this book and learn the classifications and is very handy just before the examinations.

In the next edition, if more relevant pictures (especially X-rays) can be added for better and quicker learning, simplified to understand fracture patterns, as it is the primary tool in diagnosing fractures and their types. Also if it is specified that which classification is important among all and emphasis on the one most commonly used, should be specified. This may be a part of footnote or a colored table.

I congratulate both the writers for doing wonderful job and wishing them best for future.
