Review quote

-Remarkably up to date.Provides the reader with a current understanding of disease mechanisms and deserves a place on the shelf of any health care professional, irrespective of specialty or level of training.- - JAMA, review of previous edition -Praiseworthy for the breadth and depth of its content and its ability to remain up to date. It serves the needs not only of the beginning student, the pathologist in training, but all practitioners of medicine with intellectual curiosity.- - Modern Pathology, review of previous edition -Bound to retain its standing as the definitive source for learning, or relearning, the principles of the pathologic basis of disease.- - Advances in Anatomic Pathology, review of previous edition -This book is even shorter than before. That is?really impressive. I cannot but admire this book, which I keep re-reading since I entered?Pathology in 1966. Wow, ?it shows that even a first class?book can be improved - hard to believe but true.?It is very readable and even funny in some places. The text is nicely laid out and the book looks less bulky than the previous edition. The illustrations are excellent. Even though the book is definitely for the new generations, I am sure that it will be welcomed by senior pathologists trying to keep up with the times - I doubt that I am the?only old timer eager to?re-read it.- - Ivan Damjanov, MD, PhD, author of Pathology Secrets and Pathophysiologyshow more

Our customer reviews

I HIGHLY recommend this book for those that are really keen to do outside reading. This book can answer any burning questions that some medical students have that even Wikipedia couldn't answer. I use this book alongside with Kumar and Clark for PBLs because of the detail that our group goes into and this book is definitely an 'one-stop' book for that. Besides the fact that you get STUDENT consult as suppose to PROFESSIONAL consult, the text itself is identical - so those students on a tight budget but would like an 'essential' textbook, i would recommend getting the student more
