"From the outset this dictionary was appealing. The illustrations
enhanced the explanations greatly and lead to a deeper
understanding of meanings. Photographs also increase the reader's
knowledge and give real visualisations of what to expect from
particular pathophysiologies. The appendices found in the
dictionary are both comprehensive and extremely useful."
