Ophthalmology, edited by Drs Yanoff and Duker, is a massive book organized into 12 practical sections. The 2 senior editors, assisted by the expertise of 12 section editors and more than 240 contributing authors, developed this single volume to emphasize practical, current, and relevant information in a comprehensive, not "encyclopedic," text. According to the Preface, the single-volume format was meant to keep the cost well below the cost of the multivolume sets currently available.
