MEDIA REVIEWS

"The third edition of this book...has surpassed my expectations. The quality of the book overall is excellent, from the production and layout to the illustrations, diagrams and index. The range of muscle diseases included spans both adults and children, with an integrated approach to diagnosis including clinical, genetic, biochemical and pathological features. Overall, this book has been a highlight of the past year for me. It deserves to do very well indeed and will be of immense value beyond its target readership."

-BMA Awards, 2007, Review of the 3rd Edition

"The book is aimed at diagnostic pathologists and the authors have made a sensible and valid attempt to harmonise classical nomenclature with the new advances in genetics that threaten to overturn previous attempts at classifying muscle disease. Overall, this is a well written and comprehensive textbook of muscle pathology that will be of invaluable assistance to laboratories reporting muscle pathology."
