Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Finally, the experience of the authors is evident in the writing and the book is underpinned by a wide range of current references. This is a comprehensive publication that will be of interest to genetic counsellors working in a range of settings." (Hum Genet, 2010)

"Who would read this volume? As the mantra of the time is genetic determinism, literally everyone could benefit from this book. For genetic counsellors, this volume would be a valuable textbook for their shelf. " (Sultan Qaboos University Medical Journal, 1 August 2010)
