Reviews

"The radiographs are surprisingly clear and the diagrams are excellent – illustrating points that are sometimes difficult to visualise...This book successfully shows that a topic can be made accessible without being oversimplified – and, in fact, that explanation of the nuances can often make the topic ‘easier’ still. Well done to the authors"
