Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“There is plenty of competition out there both large and small. For medical students and residents early in training, this book compares well with most (and is a tribute to the editors), but for GI fellows and gastroenterologists recertifying other sources such as Practical Gastroenterology and Hepatologyedited by Mayo Clinic gastroenterologists (including this reviewer) are likely to prove more useful.” (Gastroenterology, 1 June 2013)
