From the reviews:
"This book is the most extensive and exhaustive book on herniology that I have read. It contains almost everything one would ever want to know ... but may have been afraid to ask. The contributing authors read like a who's who list of herniology. ... This has to be the most up to date and comprehensive review of the subject ever published. ... I feel that this is a magnificent book ... most trainees and practising surgeons should have access to it." (Damon B. Bizos, South African Journal of Surgery, Vol. 40 (3), 2002)
"This is an all-embracing, `state of the art' definitive textbook on abdominal wall hernias ... . There is an excellent chapter on medicolegal issues ... which I would regard as a `must' not only for the hernia surgeon, but for all surgeons. ... The bibliographies at the end of each chapter are extensive. ... each chapter is concise and complete in its own right, and a ready reference source. I believe ... all trainees and hernia surgeons should have access to it ... ." (John Cocks, Australian and New Zealand Journal of Surgery, Vol. 72 (7), 2002)
"This book was a formidable read and not surprisingly so since it is the work of 160 distinguished contributors. The section on anatomy is excellent and the newer anatomical concepts related to laparoscopy are well described and illustrated. ... There is an excellent and well illustrated description of local anaesthetic technique for hernia repair. ... The book contains all that is of current interest but also much that (while interesting and important) is historical." (W.O. Kirwan, The British Journal of Surgery, 2002)
