"This is an update of a 2012 book that details the nature and design of the materials used for joint replacement and the response of the human body to the implants. ... This book does an excellent job of covering the intended body of knowledge. ... This is a worthwhile addition to the academic orthopedic or engineering library that is frequented by those who still read and reference print books." (Samuel J. Chmell, Doody's Book Reviews, May, 2015)
