Review of previous edition: 'It is impressive that anyone can get all of surgical pathology and cytology included in a single text ... This book does an excellent job of summarizing all of these topics. The systematic, complete, yet relatively concise approach of this textbook should appeal to a very broad audience indeed.' Advances in Anatomic Pathology Review of previous edition: '... this book will undoubtedly soothe the savaged senses and reassure the ravaged reasoning of those distraught pathologists seeking diagnostic succor with many of the daily dilemmas in the practice of pathology.' American Journal of Surgical Pathology 'For a book that's been in print for 32 years, there's no better testimony to its worth and acceptance than that lengthy record itself. To say that it is an outstanding achievement is probably not sufficient. A more apt description is that it is a monumental contribution to medical knowledge and practice.' Nano Khilnani, Biz India
