“How refreshing it is when a textbook not only advises us as to what should be done but also provides a practical framework as to how to achieve this. This book is ideal for those colleagues who feel they need a textbook in their library that is line with current thinking. ‘The Foot and Ankle in Rheumatoid Arthritis’ will be of use to students, clinicians, specialists, managers, podiatric surgeons and those interested in gait analysis. Even on the first reading of this book I found several items that I felt immediately could put into practice. Rarely these days do I feel I want to read a book like this in its entirety. This book has me hooked!” Podiatry Now, May 2007
“This book is a first in the sense that there have been no other books specifically covering rheumatoid arthritis as it affects the foot and ankle.
