'This book is factual, up to date and easy to read. There are many well chosen black and white photomicrographs. Most are of acceptable print quality....This book has been a valuable text and reference book for many practicing pathologists and despite a number of recently published books on gastrointestinal pathology it will remain a popular choice amongst pathologists.'

'The book is beautifully produced. High quality photomicrographs and numerous macroscopic photographs complement the text which reads easily....The authors concentrate on difficult aspects of histopathology, express an opinion - even on controversial topics - and give guidance to the practicing pathologist. The approach and the associated information contained in the book on management and prognosis should assist the pathologist to play a proper consultative role.'
