This is a superior book for a variety of reasons. To begin with, the editors had available a group of internationally recognized experts as contributors. Second, most of these contributors have managed to present just that amount of information needed by the serious student, neither omitting essential fundamentals, nor prolixly describing every detail ever discovered in their field of special interest. Third, by careful subject selection, the editors have managed to cover their field in fewer than 400 pages.

The book is called a second and revised edition of an earlier volume with the same title, which in turn was a report inspired by two earlier postgraduate courses. In actual fact, the present edition is a completely new book with a number of new authors. As a result it contains current and new information as well as the important older material required for understanding and use in the clinic.
