There is good use of humour...and it's very student-centred. The patient education section after each section is really helpful to focus students on the importance of education to achieve concordance."-Pauline Kingston, Lecturer, Homerton School of Health Studies Lecturer, University of East Anglia, John Clancy -- Concepts are well explained. It is lively and pitched at the level of its intended student market. Students within the field will find it easy to use. Overall the content of the book is excellent.
