"This book is even shorter than before. That is?really impressive. I cannot but admire this book, which I keep re-reading since I entered?Pathology in 1966. Wow, ?it shows that even a first class?book can be improved - hard to believe but true.It is very readable and even funny in some places. The text is nicely laid out and the book looks less bulky than the previous edition. The illustrations are excellent. Even though the book is definitely for the new generations, I am sure that it will be welcomed by senior pathologists trying to keep up with the times - I doubt that I am the?only old timer eager to?re-read it." - Ivan Damjanov, MD, PhD, author of Pathology Secrets and Pathophysiology

Anyone who interfaces with human illness should have a copy of this book." - Michael A. Seidman, M.D., Ph.D.Department of Pathology, Brigham & Women's Hospital, Boston, MA
