Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: 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.
