Editorial Reviews


The authors of the chapters are well-established authorities in hepatology who bring diverse expertise to the work, including substantial experience in pathology, infectious disease, diagnostic methodologies and therapy. The result is a book that, despite its complexity , is easy to read and understand.

The nice figures, tables and charts allow a quick and easy interpretation of the concepts it offers to readers. I especially appreciated how easy it was to find the different items of information I need in my everyday activity as a hepatologist.

A large number of books are available in hepatology. This one is an easy-to-use, ready reference not only for hepatologists but also for gastroenterologists, internists and family physicians who see patients with hepatic complaints.

About the Author

Dr John (Jack) Lake is (despite being only 43 years of age!) one of the foremost hepatologists practising in the US at this time. He is Professor of Medicine and Surgery, Director of the Gastroenterology Division and Medical Director of the Liver Transplant Program at the University of Minneapolis. He has a prodigious publications record, and is adviser and reviewer for a large number of professional journals. He was invited to join the editorial team by DrO'Grady, who identified him as the kind of young, dynamic individual whose enthusiasm and international reknown will attract top-grade international contributors to the project.

Dr John O'Grady can be seen as Dr Lake's equivalent in the UK. He has recently taken over as Director of one of the World's most prestigious centres for the study of liver diseases - the Institute of Liver Studies at King's College Hospital, London. Like Dr Lake, he has a prodigious record of publications, and contributes extensively to high level texts in hepatology (he is one of the only UK-based contributors to Schiff & Schiff!) and transplantation.

Dr Peter Howdle is a Senior Lecturer in Medicine at the University of Leeds, and Consultant Gastroenterologist at St James's University Hospital in Leeds. He was responsible forsetting up the Liver Transplant unit at St James's in 1990, and worked very closely with Dr O'Grady when he headed the unit (1992 to 1996). The unit carries out over 80 transplants per year. Dr Howdle has been a Visiting Lecturer at Harvard University Medical School, and has recently been appointed Professor of Clinical Education for the University of Leeds. He has been an Editor for Bailliere's International Practice and Research series in Clinical Gastroenterology - and hence has numerous contacts and a great deal of invaluable educational and editorial experience.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Wonderful Hepatology Reference Book August 5, 2010
This book is intended to resident physicians and fellows in the hepatology/gastroenterology field. I read the chapters related to the liver transplant operation and its complications, and all I can say that this book is stuning. well supported with charts, figures and illustrations to facilitate the learning experience. text is very well constructed and easto read. the medical content meets the expectations for fellows and training physicians in the field. I personally know the authors, and had a wonderful training experience with them on the medical ward. Finally, this is A HIGHLY RECOMMENDED book for every one interested in the hepatology sience/ experience.

Concise and superbly illustrated, this textbook will serve well as an introduction to Hepatology for GI fellows, internists and non-hepatologists. A busy practitioner will probably find pathophysiology sections too lengthy and will be better served by a "practical approach" type text. An established hepatologist will certainly enjoy a wealth of full-color photographic material and an easy access to basic information about conditions rarely seen in clinical practice. However, information in commonly encountered areas is simply too short to add anything new and a discussion about management controversies is tangential at best. The text is not referenced, rather "further reading" suggestions are given at the end of each chapter. The book is therefore "comprehensive" in scope but not in detail. Most hepatologists, especially academic ones, will be better served by any of 2-volume texts.
