"The Hospital Autopsy is greatly needed at a time when many junior pathologists are struggling to gain adequate autopsy teaching and is an essential text for reference in the post-mortem suite, as well as being useful for the examination"
-Bulletin of the Royal College of Pathologists

"Nine years on from the last edition there has been considerable expansion... Significant improvements include the use of colour for photographs, diagrams, sub-headings and summary boxes... It is... essential reading for the dwindling band of autopsy pathologists."
-ACP News
