"This book is even shorter than before. That is really impressive. I cannot but admire this book, which I keep re-reading since I entered Pathology in 1966. Wow, it shows that even a first class book can be improved - hard to believe but true.It is very readable and even funny in some places. The text is nicely laid out and the book looks less bulky than the previous edition. The illustrations are excellent. Even though the book is definitely for the new generations, I am sure that it will be welcomed by senior pathologists trying to keep up with the times - I doubt that I am the only old timer eager to re-read it." - Ivan Damjanov, MD, PhD, author of Pathology Secrets and Pathophysiology
"Pathologic Basis of Disease continues to be the most appropriate text for all students of pathology, be they in medical or health curricula, studying medical sciences in the context of another field such as engineering or business, and for professionals requiring a rapid reference to common pathologic conditions and pathways. Anyone who interfaces with human illness should have a copy of this book." - Michael A. Seidman, M.D., Ph.D.Department of Pathology, Brigham & Women's Hospital, Boston, MA
