"...a thorough, user-friendly and attractively presented reference book. I found that, unlike some other dictionaries, it contained an entry for almost every word and/or term that I looked up whilst 'road-testing' it. My first test was to look up 'appendicular skeleton', a term that was unfamiliar to me when I came across it whilst reviewing a paper; the dictionary explained it." Journal of Clinical Nursing

An essential text on every ward and every nurse's book shelf ... I would go so far as to recommend that it is the first book that student nurses should buy with their meagre book allowance!"
