Review quote

"The text throughout is well written and easy to read with informative summary boxes. The numerous illustrations and colour images are particularly helpful. Noteworthy are the accompanying videos. It is all very well reading about suturing techniques and surgical procedures, but the usefulness of actually seeing how to do the procedures mentioned in the text cannot be overestimated."
