"Highly Commended," Pathology Category, British Medical Association 2012 Medical Book Competition
"In its previous five editions, this book has had tremendous influence on the practice of hepatopathology and has been THE authoritative textbook in the field. As has been true since its creation by Sir Roddy MacSween, this sixth edition is both an encyclopedia of liver pathology ("If it's not in MacSween, it's not in the liver.") as well as a practical book for the daily practice of surgical liver pathology. As a practicing pathologist in a liver center, I can tell you this book is the only one that's never shelved, and it sits happily right next to my microscope ready for the next quick consultation." - Doody's Review Service 5 star rating, Maura F. O'Neil, MD (University of Kansas Medical Center)
