REVIEW OF PREVIOUS EDITION
"A classic primer of medical education...A current, succinct, and easily comprehensible text, which covers the essence of human pathology. Medical students and course directors will certainly appreciate the new edition. The authors should be commended on the continued improvement of a respected teaching resource."- Modern Pathology
REVIEW OF CURRENT EDITION
"The book maximises on presentation by using clear headings and sub headings, good quality colour plates, diagrams and tables. In common with many other Elsevier books, it's attractively presented. The authors are keen for the reader to learn about the advances in the field and have included details of these breakthroughs. The pathology textbook I bought as a student was just under half the price of this one and was left mostly on the shelf being largely unreadable with monochrome only illustrations and no extra features. That makes this book good value for money I would say!
