 “This well-organized and concise review is an excellent resource for the beginning surgeon as well as a useful review for even the most experienced surgeon. . .In today’s environment of ‘information overload’ with multiple e-mail lists, ‘throw away’ journals, scientific journals and meetings, it is useful to have a concise and portable book to which one can easily refer. Also, given the quality of the consultants, one can essentially ‘ask the expert’ any time of the day or night. In the end, I found Curbside Consultation in Cataract Surgery: 49 Clinical Questions to be concise and practical. One can easily refer to this book in between patients or before complex cases.”
