"What makes the editors' approach so very unique is the inclusion of extensive high resolution narrated video to illustrate in detail the techniques described in the body of the text. This is a three-dimensional process, nearly duplicating the experience of standing shoulder to shoulder with a personal master instructor. The student is able to read the principles and applications and then see in real time the execution of the techniques. There is no better way to learn." --Leonard M Dzubow MD excerpt from foreword
