"The subject matter is comprehensively covered yet not over-complicated.
The book is aimed at a wide target audience, namely 'veterinary surgeons and students, farmers and their advisers, the stockperson and anybody involved in the day-to-day practical health care of cattle. To be appealing and useful to this wide audience is a challenge, one that for the most part is successfully achieved."
