"There is a huge volume of material covered in this book which goes to an impressive depth but at the same time should not overwhelm the clinician either wanting to use this as a reference source or to help with the direct management of a patient. Being a substantial reference book, it is easy to dip in and read around a topic which hopefully will result in improved knowledge for the reader." By glycosmedia.com, May 2015
