I thought this was a great bench book for surgical pathology of the gastrointestinal tract. The book was well up to date with recent molecular advances across a wide variety of pathologies. The images were excellent, sharp, representative colour photomicrographs. There was excellent handling of opportunistic infections and of inflammatory diseases, often not well represented in surgical pathology books, which often resemble tumour catalogues. There was good coverage of some areas neglected by many histology textbooks, including biliary cytology. The approach to many of the more difficult topics was mature, balanced, honest, and informative. Most of all, the book was concise, with scarce wasted words. All in all, highly recommended.
