It is indeed a pleasure to write the foreword to this useful book which describes the most commonly used orthopedic clinical diagnostic tests to assist a wide audience within the medical world. The organization of this book is easy to follow and logical. Each chapter begins with the patient's initial presentation, which is followed by an outline of the need to take account of speci? c variables in arriving at a differential diagnosis. The author und- lines the importance of using the patient's own account as a va- able tool in reaching a diagnosis. Essential anatomy is included throughout the book. For ease of reference, all the chapters are similarly structured. Its style is simple and uncluttered, offering a step-by-step approach and avoiding overlong explanations. All in all, this book ful? lls the criteria of a reference book, a practical guide, and a succinct aide memoire for those preparing for exams. It is truly a text for everyone who must conduct orthopedic examinations, including medical students, general practitioners, and orthopedic residents. It is an outstanding contribution to the orthopedic literature.

As an examiner, he also had the opportunity to test the ability of the candidates and find out the missing areas.
