"The author provides a fresh view of laboratory animal medicine and leadership. ...The author clearly put much thought into the expression and presentation of his views, knowing full well that some in the field will disagree with his ideas. I found this book fairly easy to read and enjoyed reading the author’s perspective." --JAVMA
