"The physical design and format are reader–friendly, and the book is the size of a short hardcover novel, making it portable and easy to read on bus or train, rather than requiring that it be read at a desk to avoid the risk of injury, as is the case with so many medical tomes." (The Journal of the American Medical Association, December 2009)
