From the layperson: The book is clearly written and the language and concepts are accessible to a non-medical reader. I particularly liked the style of writing and the tone, which was non-dogmatic when discussing alternative therapies, yet able to convey warnings when necessary. Geoffrey Farrell also shows cultural awareness. The book is easily followed as a reference text. If I had liver disease, I would want to have this book.– Colleen VaughanSecondary School English teacher, Essendon, VIC
