"There are some excellent instructional appendices and most would concede that every case reviewed throws up plenty of educational and instructional titbits... This is a really interesting read (for a change!), You don't need to do it cover to cover, all the cases are pretty much self-contained though there are many references to other sections so it's best to work in sequence rather than jump about but it's not vital. Extremely well presented and well illustrated." Rescue Magazine, issue 58.
