    Personally, I have found this book to be one of the most complete and comprehensive GI pathology textbooks out there on the market now. I love it because it also covers the liver, pancreas and biliary tract, making it the prefect one-stop, one volume GI textbook. I will say that at times the pictures are not the largest but the quality is excellent….just my thoughts.

    Everything you need to know about gastrointestinal pathology is in this book and it’s really complete. Every entity is discussed from the most common to the rarest ones and accompanied by representative pictures. The differential diagnosis is well discussed and in this regards, lots of tables have been added from the previous edition. You just can’t go wrong with this book as a pathology resident, gastrointestinal fellow or practicing pathologist. The fact that you can access the text, references and images online is awesome!

    4 stars due to a major inconvenience, December 16, 2009

    This review is from: Surgical Pathology of the GI Tract, Liver, Biliary Tract and Pancreas: Expert Consult – Online and Print, 2e (Hardcover)

    This book is one of the best in the field of GI/Liver Pathology. However, there is a major inconvenience, for which I removed one star from an otherwise perfect score. The inconvenience is caused by deliberate omission of the references in the end of each chapter. This causes a lot of frustration to readers who wish to explore the originating articles. I sincerely hope they would change this in the next release.
