The most exciting aspect of this textbook for the practicing clinician is the online availability of this 9th edition via expertconsult.com. This massive text is no longer merely a shelf shocker, but it will now be at the instant disposal of every practicing gastroenterologist." - Michael Sossenheimer, MD, PhD, Practical Gastroentology
"Written by >200 international authors, most of whom are recognized authorities on their topic, it provides an authoritative overview of the scientific background and clinical practice of gastrointestinal (GI) and liver disorders that will be of greatest value to practicing and academic gastroenterologists and GI fellows, but also GI surgeons, pathologists, and internists. The 9th edition of Sleisenger and Fordtran’s is a beautifully written and edited textbook that serves to maintain its stature as the definitive work within its field. Although the role of medical textbooks is being redefined in the age of electronic media, this current, authoritative, comprehensive reference should be on the shelf of every practicing gastroenterologist to address the numerous questions that arise on almost a daily basis that cannot necessarily be addressed by an electronic search." - Kenneth R.
