Review quote

-This book is well written, with the end result being concise and succinct whilst never dry. It is user-friendly in terms of clearly denoting sub-topics, layering detail into basics, core text and using boxes appropriately for extra information. The use of diagrams is well judged, enhancing the reader's overall impression of the topic. The information is put into a context that can aid the reader to formulate a well thought out differential diagnosis/use a surgical sieve to good effect.- BMA Book Awards 2009?- judges comments -It is designed to contain only esential information and not to be laden with minutiae. This 'core' information is organised into manageable paragraphs that are subtly broken up by hierarchical headings, bullet points and frequent bold text. This book will more than meet the needs of its medical undergraduate target audience. Core Pathology does exactly what it sets out to do, and does it very well.- Dr Mike Biggs, The Bulletin of The Royal Colege of Pathologists, January 2010 -It is a truth universally acknowledged (among 5th year medical students at Imperial at least), that 'Path Month' equals torture. What better way to spend July than sitting in the Drewe lecture theatre frantically scribbling notes on the six hours of back-to-back lectures we had every day? Their pictures and diagrams were excellent, accompanied by clear labels and explanations. Most sections also included good histology sections. The text itself was quite dense and although not difficult to understand, it required a certain amount of effort and concentration to read.- Core Pathology, November 2009 a must have companion for every medical student and doctor who wishes to be well informed with comprehensive yet digestible pathological principles...It is presented in an easy-to-follow, systems based fashion, meaning that diseases are easy to locate.- ACP News, Winter 2009show more
