Reviews

`...this book should be compulsory reading for anybody learning the art of teaching and would prove useful to students about to go on courses or sit exams. '
Journal of the Royal Army Medical Corps, February 1988
`...the second edition of A Handbook for Medical Teachers is more comprehensive and even more useful than the first edition. The authors have indeed practiced what they preach! The modifications and adjustments have ensured that the Handbook will continue to be a most respected and helpful resource for many years to come.'
Bulletin Australian and New Zealand Association for Medical Education
`A book that should be in every undergraduate and postgraduate library.'
Annals of the Royal College of Surgeons of England, 70:4
`Few teachers of medical students will have had any formal training in teaching or educational methods. This book seeks to rectify this deficiency in an entertaining, informative and practical way.'
Annals of the Royal College of Surgeons of England, 86 (1986)
