..this book is a very valuable tool that will be used by future geneticists all over Europe and beyond,both as a teaching material and as a source of excellent knowledge' European Journal of Human Genetics 'The case studies emphasize the important and complex role of the clinical geneticist, something which many, even those otherwise well informed, may not fully understand. In fact, this stimulating volume may well entice more students into our exciting and expanding speciality. I would whole-heartedly recommend this book.' The Ulster Medical Journal 'I just taught with this text. It is the best text I have seen. The relevance of genetics to human medicine was apparent and it really caught the interest of the students without watering things down to the point where there were clinical vignettes, but no substantial learning opportunities in genetics to build the foundation that our students need. My hat is off to the authors and their unique design. We will certainly use the book again.' -- Professor Geoffrey Kapler Department of Molecular and Cellular Medicine, Texas A&M Health Science Center
