"This is an excellent book providing factual information and stimulating further thought and discussion." 3rd Year Medics, Rectum - University of Leeds Medical Magazine, January 2003
£14.99 the book is excellent value and few practitioners would not find it both informative and enlightening. I recommend it both as an overview, but also a useful first reference resource. For occasions when more depth is needed there are references to more detailed texts at the end of each chapter and a section on web resources."
