'encompasses all aspects of mesothelioma from its diagnosis to its medicolegal implications'

'strong focus on the differential diagnosis of the disease, making sure mimics are excluded, is a significant strength of the book, as is a nice algorithm for use when making a diagnosis of mesothelioma on serosal biopsy'

'It is well written and provides the necessary aspects to aid in the accurate diagnosis of mesothelioma so that both heartache of the patient as well as of the diagnosing pathologist can be avoided.'
