“I have watched this textbook from its first inception and was disappointed that there was no new edition for so many years. Having waited, the result now is excellent and it has overcome my preference for Emery′s Elements as a basic human genetics text.” Emeritus Professor in Clinical Genetics
"I find the reference to electronic resources particularly useful, especially for people who approach clinical genetics for the first time and are not familiar with these tools." Dr Sixto García–Miñaúr, Imperial College London, and Hospital Universitario La Paz, Madrid, Spain
