What is the general tone of the Joint Replacement Surgery book?

The tone is both technical and non-technical, both serious and humorous (when appropriate), and is an artful, thoughtful blend created to enhance understanding and to dispel confusion for the reader. We have covered these two topics (hip replacement or knee replacement) from the points-of-view of the patients (both hip surgery and knee surgery); physician; and professional, medical caregivers. Robert Holland (writing as the patient who's had a knee replacement twice) and Francine Campone (as the patient who’s had both hips replaced, bring their fresh, up-to-date and erudite perspectives about going through this journey of knee replacement surgery and hip replacement surgery from being healthy, through debilitating arthritis, and back to health once again--and they both present it as a journey from before they suspected the need for joint replacement to having successfully completed it. In addition, we have added non-captioned cartoons at the front of each chapter. These have been cleverly composed by our illustrator, Ryan Counts, to lighten up the tone and somber mood (nature) so it leaves the reader better able to make their decisions without the obviously, heavy, emotional burden of the subject matter of knee surgery and hip surgery from irrationally coloring their decision, i.e. the need to have a knee replacement or hip replacement.
