The authors have succeeded in putting together a book on breast surgery which is quite different from anything else in print...acts as a useful reference for a wide range of areas within the field of breast surgery. Although I have been a consultant for close to 20 years, I have found new information and interesting commentary in the book which has a readable style throughout...I would have no hesitation in reccomending this manual. These are plenty of textbooks about breast disease, but this book addresses the fundamentals of how UK breast surgery works in practice. (British Journal of Hospital Medicine)
The text is delivered in concise chapters adhering closely to the patient pathway. It's written in an informal and user-friendly style which is informative and easy to read... In summary, this text will provide a very valuable resource for its target audience and fills a vacant gap in the market in this role. Every breast unit would benefit from having a copy. (Nursing Network News)
A highlight of this book is its discussion of reconstructive techniques. Few books are able to summarize the oncoplastic options available to patients in a way that this book does. (Doody's Notes)
