"What distinguishes this book from some others is the thoroughness of its treatment of subjects its authority, its academic approach, and the sense of excitement that it engenders." "...great textbooks should appeal to experts in the field, should contain a series of integrated, authoritative reviews that both inform and illuminate, and should put the whole into some sort of perspective. This book succeeds with flying color." ( New England Journal of Medicine 2001-11-15)
"The book is well illustrated. Plenty of accompanying tables are helpful summaries of complex information." "In my opinion, this work has no peer and is outstanding contribution to the medicoscientific texts currently available. No library should be without a copy. It deserves its reputation as a classic." ( Doody's 2001-10-01)
