Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"it should be used as a reference for the student of IBD and/or the clinician treating patients with IBD. In one text, it has thoroughly covered research pertaining to both basic science and clinical publications. It challenges the reader's imagination regarding the true causes and gives concrete treatment recommendations." Diseases of the Colon&Rectum

"This book will appeal to all those with an interest in IBD and a desire to explore the latest evidence driving both scientific research and clinical practice. Its strength is that it is limited to areas of controversy and change, and as such will undoubtedly run to many more editions."
Gut

"This book is a worthy edition to anyone's library who has a particular interest in the field. It is extensively referenced, well illustrated and represents excellent value for money."
Colorectal Disease

From a review of the first edition:
"The editors and publishers have succeeded admirably in at least three respects... Firstly, they have assembled an all-star cast of contributors ... Secondly, they have constructed this monograph ingeniously. Each chapter title is phrased as a question, which is then examined critically with scores of references that are pertinent and up to date. As a third defining feature of this ambitious volume, the editors have demanded and received from their authors highly critical analyses of "the most recently available evidence". The authors analyse and interpret the evidence in ways that allow each chapter to reach reasonably well founded conclusions."
Gut

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Razvan Arsenescu, MD (University of Kentucky College of Medicine)
Description: This book covers clinical and epidemiologic issues in inflammatory bowel diseases. The previous edition was published in 2001.
Purpose: This is a rapidly evolving field. The numerous challenges faced by practicing gastroenterologists dealing with IBD patients make this book a useful companion. This edition provides a comprehensive review of the field in an evidence-based fashion.
Audience: The book is appropriate for practicing gastroenterologists and medical residents with an interest in gastroenterology, and inflammatory bowel diseases in particular. The authors are foremost authorities in the field.
Features: In classic textbook format, the chapters give an overview of the current knowledge and then identify limitations and controversies. Because this is a systematic review in an evidence-based manner, it would prove quite useful to those new to the field. However, the histopathology pictures lack quality and the references are rather old.
Assessment: The book is well written and addresses pertinent issues in inflammatory bowel diseases, thereby helping establish a reference point in the field. Nevertheless, this edition includes rather outdated references.
