MJA (Volume 194 Number 9), 2 May 2011 "Registrars starting in practice and studying for their exams ignore this text at their peril! The layout is educationally sound, with learning objectives, case studies and key points. The chapters are extensively referenced.?Mazza also uses many tables, photographs and helpful diagrams (although some of these could be larger)." MJA (Volume 194 Number 9), 2 May 2011
