"Fast Facts: Rheumatoid Arthritis is a well written book that will suit doctors, nurses and medical students, as well as patients who have only a basic understanding of the condition and want to get more information on clinical signs and disease pathogenesis."
Immunology News (May 2012)

'This book was so easy to read, I read it in an hour, yet I was amazed that it could update me so efficiently on the new evidence on rheumatoid arthritis, pathogenesis (especially genetics), and immunologic testing. This is a good overview of new ACR criteria, biologics, and mechanism of action with a brief discussion of the new advances in treatment.'
Richa Gupta, MD  (University of Kentucky College of Medicine) - Doody's Review Service

'Fast Facts: Rheumatoid Arthritis handbook is a comprehensive, easy-to-read guide to rheumatoid arthritis...this book represents an excellent resource for a large target audience including doctors who are not necessarily specialists in rheumatology, medical students and allied healthcare professionals.'
Clinical and Experimental Rheumatology (Jan 2012)
