    Great for anyone with an interest in pulmonary pathology, November 2, 2004

    For any physician involved with lung biopsies or lung specimens, this book is a must! Lavishly illustrated, meticulously referenced, with scholarly text and very clear pictures, you will be using it for years. I am a hematopatholgist without too much knowledge of lungs and often need help with lung specimens. This book is very good for that. Need pictures for education or conferences? This book is a wonderful resource. Good for pathologist and pulmonologists alike. It’s expensive but as pathology books go these days, it’s a good value.

    This is the best book to help a practising pathologist to sign out lung surgical and medical specimens. Finally a book that shows, explains and has conceptual grouping of pathology of the lung in a manner now seen in so many outsdanding books in other disciplines of pathology (skin or gi come to mind). Complete, helpful, completely illustrated. I will not need the other 6 textbooks that are gathering dust on my shelf any more. Expensive? perhaps but in line with the cost (exorbitant) of all good pathology books (will we ever see something good for less than 200$ anymore?).

    Great all-in-one pulmonary pathology book, July 14, 2005
    By 

    ‘Practical pulmonary pathology’ is just that – the most practical pulmonary book I have found. I am a pathology resident and wanted a concise, well-documented, all-inclusive lung book – and this is it. I especially like the infectious disease and medical lung chapters. The pictures are really good and illustrative. Furthermore, this book is organized in such a way that it is easy to thumb through and look up particular entities. I am quite happy with it.
