Editorial Reviews

"This book's appeal is to a broad range of professionals, certainly occupational and environmental medicine physicians and allied personnel. Its dual goals of being concise, yet comprehensive, will likely recommend it to primary care physicians and their consultants as well. 5 Stars!"--Doody's Review Service
