Review quote

From a review of the first edition: "Each of the eleven chapters begins with a list of chapter objectives. These objectives are very useful indeed, as they provide a clear outline of the material covered in the chapter, and allow an opportunity to review upon completion of the chapter...Overall, this text book is most impressive. It includes an easy to understand glossary, clear headings, and comprehensive chapters arranged in an appropriate sequence, each building on the knowledge of the previous chapters." "Medical Student, University of Adelaide," Ramsay Group Medical Books, January 2002
