Review quote

"This is a very well-designed, well-written, well-edited, practical textbook on the intestine and pancreas. The chapters are concise, placed in a clinical context, fast moving, and useful. Although it does not replace definitive textbooks and continually updated Internet resources, it will be my first stop for quick and authoritative reviews on specific topics." (Gastroenterology, 1 April 2011)
