"…Singh and Williams have clearly chosen their authors well. The experts responsible for each chapter are clearly very knowledgeable and did an outstanding job of sharing that knowledge with the reader. Very often in books of this kind the density of the detail makes the reading rather difficult. Not in the case of this monograph. The reading is easy."
