The At A Glance Series sets out to summarise the essential information about a particular subject for the student requiring a quick introduction or a guide to revision. This is achieved by taking each part of the subject in turn and condensing it into a two-page spread with a schematic diagram on the left and a concise explanation on the right which repeats some of what is in the drawings and adds further basic information.
