Any book which has gone through eight editions in 40 years must surely be regarded as something of a classic, and this is certainly true of 'Hunter's Diseases of Occupations'. Uniformly readable, well-constructed and well referenced.
Journal of the Royal Society of Medicine
I commend it to my hospital colleagues as both an authoritative text and a tome in which to dip and to browse. It should be in every Occupational Health centre.
Journal of the Royal Naval Medical Service
Deserves to be in all hospital and medical school libraries. All doctors training in general medicine should read it.
An excellent reference work that should be an essential part of all of the reference works available to occupational physicians, occupational nurses, general practioners and hospital specialists who routinely deal with patients who may have work-related conditions.
Management of Occupational Health, Safety & Enviro
The temptation to ""turn the page"" is unusually strong and I found myself reading late into the night. I learnt more about cancer from this chapter (Venitt) than I would have thought possible. An almost ideal book for somebody taking up the specialty of occupational medicine to read for both pleasure and instruction. Candidates for the Faculty examinations should certainly read it. An excellent book.
Occupational and Environmental Medicine
A fine book which should be stocked by all medical libraries...it is not unduly expensive...certainly deserves a place on the shelves of occupational physicians, and of other physicians or surgeons with a subspecialty interest in occupational disease. Some general practitioners and occupational nurses will also find it meets their needs. Occupational hygienists, safety practitioners and lawyers with an occupational health practice may also find it useful, though it does assume some medical knowledge. Congratulations to the editors and may there be many future editions.
