From the book reviews:

"This is a slim monograph on robotic surgery with the da Vinci Surgical System. ... The book is intended for students, residents, and experts. It will be most valuable to those seeking information about what is possible with robotic systems. ... this book serves as a brief overview of popular and spectacular applications of this technology for those seeking a window into this rapidly developing field." (Carol Scott-Conner, Doody's Book Reviews, September, 2014)

"As this book could well be the first book focused on robotic surgery for many of its readers, the introductory chapters do a good job of spelling out the fundamentals. The description and illustrations of the equipment and the principles behind their implementation is authoritative and comprehensive and forms most of the `general interest' part of the book. Indeed, most of this would be accessible (and engrossing) to the informed non-medical reader as well." (Sushil Dawka, Archives of Medical and Biomedical Research,, Vol. 1 (3), 2014)
