Reviewer: Willem J.S. de Villiers, MD, PhD, MHCM (University of
Kentucky College of Medicine) Description: With the ninth edition of
this comprehensive and authoritative textbook on gastrointestinal and liver
diseases, readers will have access to the online version and downloadable
images. The previous edition was published in 2006. Purpose: This is
a superb example of a state-of-the-art, user-friendly textbook that covers
disorders of the gastrointestinal tract, biliary tree, pancreas, and liver, as
well as related topics of nutrition and peritoneal diseases.
Audience: It is intended for gastroenterologists, trainees in
gastroenterology, primary care physicians, residents in medicine and surgery,
and medical students. Those in the medical field with a more than passing
interest in gastroenterology and hepatology should acquire this comprehensive
and authoritative book. It is user friendly, beautifully illustrated, and
contains a wealth of information. The editors and contributors are all eminent
authorities in their respective fields. Features: The two-volume
textbook is divided into 11 sections that comprehensively address the biology of
the GI tract and liver; nutrition in gastroenterology (with new chapters on
bariatric surgery and its complications); symptoms, signs, and biopsychosocial
issues; topics involving multiple organs; esophagus; stomach and duodenum;
pancreas; biliary tract; liver; small and large intestine; and palliative,
complementary, and alternative medicine. Many new authors have been added and
the quality of the material is uniformly excellent. The figures in this edition
are of exceptionally high quality and clarity. The online version is easy to
access and navigate; several updates have already been added and complete
references are available on the website. Assessment: However
difficult it may be in this day and age, this ninth edition is further improved
and refined. The contents remain as academically sound as always, but the
aesthetic appearance of has been much enhanced. It is a must for every
gastroenterologist and hepatologist's bookshelf and the fast-moving pace of the
field warrants a new edition. The online version is a significant advance and
will enable this book to remain relevant in the UpToDate, easy access era.
