About the Book
It was the need of time. With the reduction of 1st Professional MBBS curriculum in basic sciences to one year, students could hardly afford presently available textbooks of osteology. The idea behind the present contribution was to minimize the description, without compromising with essential informations, in a lucid manner. The unique feature of this book is its diagrams, which have been independently drawn by author himself, to minimise the factual inaccuracies. Coloured line diagrams have been included to provide support to the textual description. Clarity in the language and way of presentation further enhance the value of the book.1.
