"...a text aimed at students and practitioners alike...The writing is wonderfully clear and relevant, which is well complemented by good diagrams and mosr interestingly of all, clearly labelled series of photographs which explain procedures clearly. This is a fine first edition and certainly fills a gap in the market for this kind of well-researched text." Student, MAD Magazine - Barts and The London Students' Association, June 2004
