“Although the book is aimed at nurses, veterinary students would certainly benefit from its practical approach.”  (Vet Nurses Today, 1 January 2016)

Endoscopy for the Veterinary Technician fills an important void in the literature and covers all aspects of  veterinary endoscopy, both flexible and rigid, from the standpoint of veterinary technicians. (JAVMA, 15 March 2016)

"Cox has produced a textbook that would be beneficial to those who are new to endoscopic procedures or those who are at the intermediate level, with canines and felines. It has clear images and technician’s tips throughout the text. Veterinary students may also benefit from this text and the recommended websites
and readings that are suggested at the end of each chapter" NZ Vet Nurses Association, March 2017
