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