"It is well written and easy to read. The innovative format that the book applies in which each chapter is entitled by a relevant question, makes it very friendly to the reader and increases its potential to be a quick reference book or companion book for the clinical hepatologist. It is up-to-date, and the use of simple diagrams and tables increase the value of this book. It is a must read for the gastroenterology/hepatology fellow, for the junior Hepatology attending and even for senior hepatologists who would like a quick review of current literature. As the title indicated, it answers typical curbside questions, that often require an extensive search of the literature and deep insight into the hepatology field."

"Each question is answered efficiently with appropriate charts and figures. The bridge between medical literature and actual medical practice is a unique aspect to this text. The authors do a great job of separating evidence-based guidelines from expert opinion or personal practice. The overall quality of this text was excellent. Curbside Consultation of the Liver will be a welcome companion for hepatology textbooks and practice guidelines. Physicians, from the resident to the hepatologist, presented with these clinical questions will find this text to be a quick review and adjunct in clinical practice."
-- Geoffrey Fillmore, DO & Mark Jeffries, DO, Scott and White Hospital, Texas A&M Health Science Center, Practical Gastroenterology
"The questions are common and practical; as such the book does an admirable job of meeting the objectives. The chapters are written by the well regarded hepatology faculty from Virginia Commonwealth University Medical Center as well as gastroenterology fellows from this institution. They impact a solid and practical command of the field and are credible authorities. This is a very useful practical approach to commonly encountered hepatology management questions. The format is enjoyable and the information easy to comprehend. It represents a welcome change from the usual staid textbook fare."
