From the reviews of 1st edition:
"A wealth of practical experience and clinical wisdom have been collected in this book — the sections on contraindications; pre-, peri- and postoperative care; the numerous therapeutic options; the management of co-morbidity; and the editorial comments (included even when the author of the chapter was the editor himself!) make this a text no general surgeon can ignore." (G.J.Oettle, South African Journal of Surgery 2002;40(3):108)
