"Overall I would strongly recommend this book as a starter text for senior SHOs and junior registrars. Those more experienced will also find it a useful revision tool." Dr Kate Evans SpR Gastroenterology
"This is a fantastic book for newly appointed gastroenterology registrars/fellows and other professionals with an interest in the field." TiGs
"This is a welcome third edition of a well known book for a wide audience. Dr Simon Travis has enlisted the help of gastroenterology experts from a larger field giving the book a more global appeal." MRCP Gastroenterology Specialist Registrar
On previous editions ...
"The 'Pocket Consultants' are a popular series of books aimed at doctors in training, both under- and post-graduate. Thus this is akin to carrying around a consultant-like opinion and font of knowledge in your pocket, and acting as an aid to making your opinion comparable to that of a senior colleague. It is also like having a slice out of one of the bigger textbooks, but being able to carry it around, and maybe, surreptitiously look up a topic." Gastroenterology Today
"This little book is valuable support for junior hospital staff and general practitioners." Scandinavian Journal of Gastroenterology
