"The text is aesthetically pleasing and more importantly, it is small and paperback, thereby making it very portable for students and house staff to carry on rounds or when seeing patients. By asking the very questions that many internists and gastroenterologists encounter daily, Dr. Katz is able to provide us with information not usually found in routine textbooks. Perhaps most impressive is how up-to-date the book is. With many of the references going back only a few years, Dr. Katz gives us recent data in this evolving field. Overall, I feel that this text is an excellent resource for internists, gastroenterologists, and trainees alike. It manages to take many of those challenging clinical scenarios with which we are always faced, and in one easy-to-read book, gives a rational approach to each."

"...Dr. Katz provides very clear, easy-to-follow, and evidence-based answers to each question. He does not shy away from tough clinical questions that occasionally do not have simple or straightforward answers. He attempts to weight all possible options while at the same time offering a clear diagnostic and/or therapeutic approach...The simple arrangement of the content, in a question-answer format, makes the book very attractive for a busy gastroenterologist and potentially other health care personnel who work in the GI field, such as surgeons, nurse practitioners, physician assistants and even primary care physicians...Bottom Line: This is an excellent book that is likely to be utilized daily. Its small size makes it easy to carry. This new book style represents a refreshing attempt to make medical textbooks more user friendly and part of the doctor's daily source of medical information."
