With discussions of newer radiographic methods, addition of a section on disorders of vertebral arteries, and extensive rewriting of previous text, this edition is noticeably longer than the second. The accounts of metabolic, endocrine, and chemical aspects of bone disease are often inadequate and antique. Many of the illustrations are of mediocre quality, usually due to an excessively narrow range of tonality that conveys an impression of grayness. Despite these limitations, Epstein's book is still a useful descriptive guide to the lesions in the spine that are characteristic of medical and surgical disease of bone.
