Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Ivan Damjanov, MD (University of Kansas Medical Center)
Description: This is the sixth edition of the leading pathology textbook used in most U.S. medical schools and many other parts of the world. This book is updated with many rewritten chapters and additional color illustrations. A new artist was hired to provide multicolor illustrations.
Purpose: This book remains the leading textbook of pathology for medical students.
Audience: It is both a textbook and a reference aimed at students of pathology.
Features: All the major topics of general and systemic pathology are covered. The material is presented in a standard manner enabling the students to easily learn the basic aspects of human diseases. The text is well illustrated by high quality color photographs well thought through diagrams. At the end of each chapter there are well chosen references.
Assessment: This book remains the leading textbook of pathology for medical students in the U.S. All the attractive features of previous editions have been retained, and even though it is now multi-authored it still reads well, and has the master imprint of the chief editor. The material is presented very attractively and it should appeal to medical students and their teachers alike. Few medical students will be able to read it cover to cover, but many of them will buy it and save for future reference.

    The recommended text for my school

    Overall, a good book that covers all the topics in great detail - so much detail that it makes for terribly boring reading. Very technical, lots of information for the serious nerds out there. But you all knew what you were getting into. Use it for the main text to understand, supplement it with another outline for memory.

    A-One

    You dont need a teacher if you have this book by your side. The illustrations and histologic slides offer you immense knowledge about the diseases.

    A medical school essential

    If you know this book front to back, you will ace medical school. If you are a self-learner, simply skip your pathology classes and use this book. This was my #1 reference for my entire 2nd year.

    Excellent text

    This text is a must have for med school or PA program!! I advise you DO NOT buy the CD-rom that accomodates it. It's terrible. The pocket guide is ok, nothing to rely on.

    Poorly organized, a helter-skelter of details

    The poor organization of this book detracts any value from its numerous color micrographs, gross photographs, etc. Topics are presented in terms of their morphology, genetics, clinical features, pathogenesis, etiology, etc--each with a separate section! I feel like I'm reading pieces of a 1000-piece jigsaw puzzle and must read through multiple times (the below reviewer is right on target) to assemble them into an integraed whole. I suppose that many students will enjoy this book because of lack of a better text, but there ARE better books out there...note also that Stanley Robbins' name only appears on the book--he took no part in the editorial process , and it shows (his 1960ish book makes a heck of a lot more sense, despite being outdated).

    Good for all!

    I'm a year four medi student. Sometimes, I need to take a review for my rotation. The text is fascinating and clear-cut. Anyway, recommended.

    The Gold Standard of Med Student Pathology

    This is a detailed and a fascinating reference text of pathology. This is the gold standard to which all other undergraduate patho books are compared. This is not a book for the faint of heart, but if you want to master pathology, this is the book for you. Admittedly, this book is way too much except for the most dedicated student and is best used as a reference text. It will flesh out your understanding and your class notes. I wouldn't (and didn't) use this as my primary text, but I did refer to it often.

    Poorly written

    The authors have a tendency to be long winded in their descriptions. The authors also tend to jump from subject to subject within a paragraph or section, making it difficult to comprehend major topics without reading through multiple times.
