This is "the" source for soft tissue tumors for residents and staff alike. The descriptions are concise, and the organization of chapters is good. This book is well-written and never dry (well...it's as un-dry as a medical textbook on tumors can be). This is an outstanding source for soft tissue neoplasms. I recommend this book highly. I read certain parts of it for my Pathology boards, which I passed, and give partial credit to this book for my success. This book is really good. However, if you're on a budget, you should definitely consider the WHO Soft Tissue book. It's got the same material but is a LOT cheaper. You will not miss out on anything if you get the WHO book. At some point, though, when your budget loosens up, you need to get this book.

This is an essential textbook in the field of soft tissue tumors/sarcoma. I am a dermatologist and have bought them whenever this title has been revised. You can confirm the quality of this title by putting on bookshelf in all medical schools in Japan. (I haven't visiting libraries abroad, but I must be able to see it.) I recommend it not only dermatologist but also orthopedists and pathologists in the world!

2 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Living it up in ABQ. on June 29, 2005
Format: Hardcover
This book is very well-organized and the index is great. Although the size of the book is somewhat daunting - the quality of the photos and the many examples shown for each entity is phenomenal. In my mind, this book is really a soft tissue atlas with abundant text. The text is concise, but thorough and doesn't put you to sleep. I like this book better than the WHO book simply because each entity has numerous examples showing the various permutations and the pictures are color and half-page in size. Shop around, I found this book brand new for nearly half the price!

A comprehensive encyclopedic volume on all known soft tissue lesions with great gross and microscopic descriptions and loads of photos. The book is well organized and has a logical approach for faster diagnosis. It gives clinical and radiologic correlation as well as molecular and immunohistochemical findings for each lesion for better understanding and differential diagnosis. Overall, a topnotch reference and textbook for those signing out soft tissue lesions of all types from common to rare.

3 of 5 people found the following review helpful By A. F. SHERIF on May 2, 2006
Format: Hardcover
This book, although apparently volimnous, represents the first book to be read as the first step on the journey of surgical pathology. It does illustrate some important issue with regard the basic facts within the surgical pathology realm. The reader will find that the majority of this book is in the form of excellent illustrating photographs (as must be in all surgical pathology textbooks) to the extent you will be somehow familiar with these tumors. The differential diagnosis section at each entity makes the reader to feel exactly as if in soft tissue pathology seminar. You will get more experience in examining any case even outside the field of soft tissue taking into account the patient age, tumor location, tumor edge, the histopathologic clues, and of course interpretation of immunohistochemical results. You will learn more about the value of electron microscopy with great ease even if you don't care about it.
