This book has 10 chapters and is very well written. The language is very easy to understand, simple and lucid. The first chapter on anatomy is made attractive and interesting by good diagrams, the second chapter deals with the much neglected preoperative preparations on which the success of the surgery is based. The third chapter is the soul of the book—it is of great use to the young spine surgeons as it deals with various case scenarios with the best possible operative techniques to handle each and every challenging situation that one encounters in a day-to-day practice. The subsequent chapters deal with on-table complications and ways to avoid and get out of them; steps to prevent epidural fibrosis, which can become a troublesome problem to handle, epidural medications to counter it. Chapters on instrumentation, microscopes and magnifying loupes stress the role of instruments in the successful surgical outcomes
