Overview

The review from Gastroenterology sums up the appeal of this book: "More than any other text in liver diseases, this one provides the best source of synthesised clinical wisdom, a currency in ever increasingly short supply as our fund of factual knowledge burgeons. Indeed, if one demanded that an author confine the breadth of our knowledge in liver disease into a readable clinical textbook of less than 700 pages, he or she could do no better than to direct that individual to Sherlock and Dooley's Diseases of the Liver and Biliary System".

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This is a concise, updated, and well-written book that justifies replacing the previous edition. It is definitively useful and exhibits the same high quality of other currently available books in hepatology. I know I will consult my copy on a frequent basis — an unusual event in this era of online material." (Doody's, 16 March 2012)

"James Dooley is to be congratulated on his courage and dedication along with his clearly inspiring leadership to contributing authors has not allowed Sheila's volume to die with her passing. The Hepatology world, has been given a thoroughly up-to-date, exciting and cleverly produced volume which competitors will have greatest difficulty in matching." (Institute of Hepatology, 2011)

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Paul Angulo, Professor of Medicine(University of Kentucky College of Medicine)
Description: This needed update represents a compilation of the medical knowledge in hepatology gathered over the last decade. The book was first published in 1955, and the previous edition was published in 2002.
Purpose: The purpose is to update topics in hepatology that have been covered in prior editions and add new chapters on topics that have not appeared in prior editions.
Audience: This well-written, relatively concise, and current book will find a home on the shelves of many hepatologists. However, because it is so readable, it also should be useful for students, experts, and those in between.
Features: The book essentially covers most areas in hepatology, moving from anatomy and function of the liver to diseases that affect the liver directly and to liver involvement in systemic disorders. The editors have assembled a group of authors who honor Professor Dame Sheila Sherlock's commitment to hepatology. Most chapters cover a topic in detail, but a shortcoming of the book is the rather brief coverage of some topics, such as liver disease in pregnancy. The radiology images, color figures, and tables greatly enhance the readability of the book.
Assessment: This is a concise, updated, and well-written book that justifies replacing the previous edition. It is definitively useful and exhibits the same high quality of other currently available books in hepatology. I know I will consult my copy on a frequent basis — an unusual event in this era of online material.
