Of the book, plastic surgeon Dr. Joseph Murray, Nobel Laureate, says,""I read your book with interest and was impressed by your insight into the essence of Cosmetic Surgery.... You have led a remarkable life of experiences." Dr. Leon Morgenstern, Emeritus Professor of Surgery, UCLA, writes of Dr. Yuan's book: "... interesting, literate, entertaining, informative and well-written... I got a great deal of pleasure reading them. There is much surgical and medical wisdom than just plastic surgery."
