Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Ivan Damjanov, MD (University of Kansas Medical Center)
Description: This eighth edition of the classic and leading textbook of pathology has been fully reworked and updated. It covers in great detail all aspects of general and systemic pathology.
Purpose: It was conceived some 35 years ago as a comprehensive textbook for medical students and it still remains the leading medical school textbook, although it is well known that many students keep it for reference even after they have graduated. Thus, it also can serve a reference for practicing physicians. The editors' goals to cover pathology in a modern manner have been completely reached.
Audience: Initially this was a single author title, but over time, from one edition to another, it gradually became more complex and became a multiauthored text written by some 25 contributors and four editors. Even though it is primarily aimed at medical students, it also will be used by pathology residents and as a shelf reference by trainees in other specialties needing an authoritative yet concise source of pathology information. The authors are all well known pathologists and educators.
Features: The book is divided in two parts: general and systemic pathology. The first part consists of 10 chapters and the second part of 19 chapters, covering all aspects of pathology in a didactic manner. The organization of the book follows the standard format of previous editions. The book is well organized and well edited, making it quite informative and readable. Numerous color illustrations, drawings, and diagrams depict molecular pathology events and pathogenetic sequences. At the end of each chapter there are well chosen, current references. The detailed index is most helpful for searching the book and locating desired terms. The book has two formats: the student text includes access to studentconsult.com, whereas the professional edition is linked to expertconsult.com.
Assessment: This is a masterfully written and edited new edition of the leading American pathology textbook, well known and widely read throughout the world. Some material from the previous edition has been deleted, some has been updated, and some has been expanded, so that the book is approximately the same size and number of pages as the previous edition. The emphasis on molecular biology reflects the general trend and direction in which scientific pathology is evolving, but the good old anatomic foundations of pathology have not been forgotten. The book is well written and well illustrated and I am sure that it will appeal to its readers. This book has always had a clinical aspect and the clinical-pathological correlations are still its main strength. I recommend it highly and greet it as one of the major events in pathology publishing in 2009.
From the Publisher
"This book is even shorter than before. That is really impressive. I cannot but admire this book, which I keep re-reading since I enteredPathology 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

"Pathologic Basis of Disease continues to be the most appropriate text for all students of pathology, be they in medical or health curricula, studying medical sciences in the context of another field such as engineering or business, and for professionals requiring a rapid reference to common pathologic conditions and pathways. Anyone who interfaces with human illness should have a copy of this book." - Michael A. Seidman, MD, PhD, Department of Pathology, Brigham & Women’s Hospital, Boston, MA

    Not Recommended

    I will never buy another electronic textbook. It is impossible to use. My activation code does not work. The numbers are incorrect. The links do not work.

    Absolutely essential

    This book is a must-read! I am in my fourth year of medical school and decided to buy this new edition and read it cover to cover. I have about 300 pages left to go and I am so happy with my decision. I am re-learning so much that I had forgotten since years 1 and 2 of medical school! This book is absolutely essential to any health care professional.

    As good as previous editions!

    Excellent book, as the previous editions, now updated with new info, especially in the gen path section, excellent reference for students (medical and veterinary), residents and professionals. Got the professional edition, which I also love.
