Published Reviews "Rest assured, you will not be overwhelmed with the information provided in the 707 pages of this book because it is well laid out in each chapter, and presented with a variety of visuals and arrangements of text.Throughout all the chapters you will see color micrographs of the diseases with captions, often detailed. You will also see shaded tables and text boxes that present the information in outline form, for easier grasp and understanding. The charts give you different types of views." ˜Nano Khilnani
