Written for the true beginner, the updated and revised second edition of A Systematic Approach to Strabismusexamines the basic types of strabismus, ocular motility, ocular examination of pediatric patients, and extraocular muscle anatomy and functions. Unique features inside the Second Edition: • Uses practical and easy-to-follow “how to” instructions to offer fundamental education on the four parts of an eye exam: history, vision, sensory testing, and motor testing. • Includes necessary information to successfully complete pediatric and strabismus eye exams. • Highlights the order of testing in an effort to gather the most important information prior to a pediatric meltdown and to avoid “exam pollution.” Having worked in both private practice and university settings, Virginia Karlsson brings over 30 years of experience with pediatric ophthalmology and adult strabismus to the pages of A Systematic Approach to Strabismus, Second Edition. Ophthalmic technologists, technicians, assistants, residents, and students will welcome this unique book into their education and career.
I have ordered quite a few books from Amazon, the only place to go for me. When I discovered Debra Lee Baldwin’s “Succulent Container Gardens” book, I tried to find it at my local library. They did not have it so I recommended they buy it. Almost immediately, they did, and I checked it out and loved it so much I had to have my own copy. It has LOTS of gorgeous colored photos of all the possibilities you can do with colorful succulents in pots. I’m a bromeliad lover, but I have since developed a great interest in the easy to grow (even inside) succulents. I highly recommend this book and her other book as well, “Designing with Succulents” for landscaping purposes outdoors.
This book is a great buy for any succulent lover. It is a great book for novice or a more experienced succulent collector. The information is excellent and the photos are very enticing. I got many ideas for plantings and design of my containers. There is good information on plant care and combinations that work well together. My book is already full of Post It’s and dog eared pages. I would buy this again and plan on giving one as a gift to a fellow succulent enthusiast.
I almost swooned when I opened this book – the photos are “succulent”! There are design ideas on every page, and I’m already beginning to put some of them into action. Many people in my area (East Tennessee) have rocky yards and consider them a curse, but now I can’t wait to start painting my landscape with cold-hardy succulents. And also, thanks to an idea in this book, I have a use for a nasty birdbath I was just going to throw out – it’s about to become a container for succulent art.
- I was prompted to purchase this book after a beautiful photo accompanying a review in the paper caught my eye. I have been intrigued by succulents, and due to space considerations appreciated the special approach regarding containers.
The book itself is breathtaking in its beauty. You can see the author’s expertise with photography as well as her plant and design knowledge throughout. My first use of the book was to learn more about the succulents I have been growing, and how to help them thrive (some can tolerate lower light conditions, for example). I repotted and arranged them, and then have moved forward to purchase some new plants for further experimentation.
While the book could serve as a coffee table item, please do use it to put together artful arrangements of these most stunning plants!
I got this for a friend who can only garden in containers on a small patio. I love all Debra’s other books — I have a large and varied garden — but this book was a new one to me. Debra’s photos are fantastic and her overview of decorating with and collecting succulents will bring out the frustrated artist in anyone. These plants are truly sculptural and make one appreciate the natural beauty and peculiarity of the plant world. How I love succulents since my kids first got me a succulent book by Debra Lee Baldwin!
- If you’re a fan of succulents and are interested in how to plant them, what pots to use to show them off at their best, how to grow them inside, what soils/fertilizers to use, what colors go best with each other, what incredible pots are available, this is the book to buy!!
I love it………..thank you for your very fast service. I am enjoying each chapter. Lydia
I recieved my book and have only briefly looked over it but I was very pleased. I was able to quickly look up questions I had and the author had enough information for me to use. The author gives example that a beginner like myself can use or more advanced succulent gardener could appreciate. The photos are beautiful and generous throughout the whole book. I was really happy with this purchase and would recomend it. This book insn’t so much of a “how too”, so if your looking for step by step,look elsewhere. The title of this book doesnt suggest it’s a how too, i just want to help any buyers to know what their getting. This would be a nice gift. The ideas in this book are creative and inspiring!! AAA’s all around from me.
Excellent book. Well organized, informative, well written, good photographic illustrations. Even if you’re not a succulent gardener, the garden planning tips and landscape design ideas can be applied to any gardening situation. Information particularly useful for California gardeners, but applicable to all areas of the US. This is a must have for anyone interested in sprucing us their garden and creating an interesting new easy to care for look. Good price, free shipping was a good incentive to buy.
This is a truly inspiring book for wannabe succulent gardeners. The pictures are stunning and the advice is well written and easy to comprehend. More than just a book for gardening with succulents, it covers form, color and function as well. Can’t say enough good things about this book!
