Review:

Book review of the 1st edition in Occupational and Environmental Medicine journal (Nov 1995): "This comprehensive volume is the first of a planned series of four dealing with pulmonary toxicology. As a source of information on the comparative biology of the mammalian lung it is unrivalled..There is no doubt that this is an excellent book: but who should buy it, given that it is not cheap at 120? Anybody who is professionally concerned with the biology of the lung should have access to a copy.If the next three volumes are as good as this then the series will be a benchmark publication in inhalation toxicology." - R.L. Maynard
