What the readers have said about my latest book

  • An excellent informative book for people suffering from Morton's neuroma, those contemplating surgery and healthcare professionals who manage problematic foot health conditions. Easy to read and understand with helpful diagrams.


  • I have been a practicing foot surgeon for about 38 years (in the USA). I found this book very much like the way I would try to inform patients about what their foot problem was ... I will definitely be advising my patients to read this and keep it handy as their disease process moves along.

    Dr Paul Stepanczuk DPM,

  • Wonderful book!! So helpful and not all medical jargon that you can't understand. Would recommend this highly to anyone who is about to undergo this kind of surgery.


  • “I liked the diagrams very much … diagrams and drawings are a highly useful way to convey complicated information.”

    Lyndon Jones,

  • “…I think that your book should become a “MUST HAVE” for everyone interested in Morton’s Neuroma - patients and clinicians alike.”
