Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"I found this book very interesting and helpful. I used it with my peers as a question and answer session. The questions I found were frequently asked questions by medical students, and having a clear and accurate answer was brilliant. Overall I would defiantly buy this book; I find it fascinating to read out if interest but also very useful as a learning tool."

Stephanie Henderson, Medical Student
