Review quote

"This is a concise, updated, and well-written book that justifies replacing the previous edition. It is definitively useful and exhibits the same high quality of other currently available books in hepatology. I know I will consult my copy on a frequent basis -- an unusual event in this era of online material." (Doody's, 16 March 2012) "James Dooley is to be congratulated on his courage and dedication along with his clearly inspiring leadership to contributing authors has not allowed Sheila's volume to die with her passing. The Hepatology world, has been given a thoroughly up-to-date, exciting and cleverly produced volume which competitors will have greatest difficulty in matching." (Institute of Hepatology, 2011)

Back cover copy

The review from "Gastroenterology" sums up the appeal of this book: "More than any other text in liver diseases, this one provides the best source of synthesised clinical wisdom, a currency in ever increasingly short supply as our fund of factual knowledge burgeons. Indeed, if one demanded that an author confine the breadth of our knowledge in liver disease into a readable clinical textbook of less than 700 pages, he or she could do no better than to direct that individual to Sherlock and Dooley's Diseases of the Liver and Biliary System."
