Review quote

From the reviews: "This is a compact paperback on surgery of the small bowel derived from a large two-volume comprehensive text on general surgery. ... Written for trainees and practitioners, the book is likely to be most helpful to residents during their rotations on GI surgery and surgical oncology. ... This is a compact, reasonably priced book with a wealth of detail about current management of a variety of disorders affecting the small intestine (and appendix)." (Carol Scott-Conner, Doody's Review Service, March, 2012)
