    "It is not a large book, it only spans 244 pages but don’t be fooled by this size; this book is packed with highly relevant information, easy to read and very clinically focussed."

    Dr. Harry Brown

    "This short reference book is well-organized, has little to no redundancy, and no extraneous chapters or information. The tables and diagrams are high-yield, very clear, and useful. Since this book has a combined American and European authorship, including both the SI units and U.S. customary units is unique and will appeal to a wider audience."
