    Review quote
    "All in all these two titles are excellent revision guides for under and post graduate students and can be highly recommended". (Journal of Tropical Pediatrics, 19 December 2010) "Whilst the descriptive style of writing helps to engage the reader, it is the many diagrams which help to drive home key points." (Oxford Gazette, July 2010)
