From the reviews:

"This book … calls to tackle the problem of AMD using a number of different approaches. … The content and quality of the writing and editing are excellent. … each chapter is clearly written and critically reviews the literature, contrasting and comparing results from different studies. … There are excellent colour plates … . This book provides an excellent synthesis of the research into the mechanisms of the disease … . I recommend it to anyone interested in age-related macular degeneration." (Clinical and Experimental Optometry, Vol. 88 (5), September, 2005)

"This book is multi-authored with each chapter written by experts in the different fields that are working to unravel the mysteries and facts on age-related macular degeneration (AMD). … The editors, and the authors of the individual chapters have to be congratulated for providing such an excellent resume on the different facets of AMD. … Scientists working in the field of AMD will find this book extremely useful as well because it brings together in one book all the facts … ." (Winfried Amoaku, Eye News, Vol. 13 (1), 2006)
