The global approach makes the text (e-book). 896 pp. very readable for UK and European readers. The price is probably beyond the range for most books purchased in occupational health. Nevertheless, it is the best pri- mer on environmental health I have come across that is directly relevant to the advisory work that practising medicine in an industrial setting entails. In essence, it comprehensively covers the environmental medicine that all specialist occupational physicians should know. I believe occupational health departments should buy a copy of this book for clinicians to read.

The book is structured logically into five parts. It com- mences with engaging primers on the fundamental sci- entific disciplines underpinning this area. It then relates these principles to subsequent sections on the global, regional and local contexts before rounding off with an introduction to environmental health in practice. It is very accessible in explaining the scientific issues using a variety of clear methods including clear subsections, textboxes and highlighting key words with definitions. As expected from such a distinguished editor, the text is of impeccable scientific quality. From an occupational medicine perspective, it covers all the main areas where we often have limited knowledge about environmental topics.
