"(The editor) has collected an amazing number of international occupational health professionals to write these four volumes. Indeed, the directory of around 2,000 specialists from 65 countries who contributed, reads like a Who’s Who of the current international occupational health community. Overall, these four volumes are an amazing addition to the occupational health literature and they should be on the shelves of all OHR readers and in every public library. They are essential reading for all occupational health specialists, especially where library facilities are less easily available."
