Review quote

From reviews of the 1st edition: This is a practical benchtop manual, which is comprehensive and fills a gap in the market. It is recommended, especially as an introductory handbook for trainees in anatomical pathology. (Clinical, Anatomical, Experimental Pathology 2002:34;204.) The textbook should be available n each institute of pathology which is still performing autopsies, especially when young colleagues are to be trained in this technique. (Electronic Journal of Pathology and Histopathology 19-03-01.)
