Reviews of previous edition:
This book is a good guide to ophthalmology with a to-the-point attitude...which is in full colour. -- Mad magazine, the official journal of Barts and The London Students' Association
This is the book for the ones who are tired of heavy, difficult to read and unorganised medical literature...This 'key elements' frame is good for using both as an introduction to each theme and for summing up/repetition. -- Medical Student, Norwegian University of Science and Technology, Trondheim
I already own several books in the ‘Illustrated Colour Text' series, and like the approach to medical specialties...The information given is written in a style easy for the non-specialist to understand, but gives enough detail to give a good understanding of the topic being covered...Overall I found this book to be a useful addition to my medical library, I look forward to using it when I come to study my ophthalmology block and will recommend it to my peers. -- Medical Student, Dundee University, UK
