 It is rare to find a book that does exactly what it says it will do. Often there can be a lack of clarity, too much detail or insufficient explanation, lack of practical application, poor formatting or just no decent pictures to accompany the text. Andys book achieves everything it says it will do and then some. Andys experience through his day to day work, through lecturing and his tremendous ability to do anything he turns his hand to very well indeed, has resulted in this fourth addition to his series on meat inspection.
