I read this book before ever taking a class on GI physiology (though I have a background in other aspects of physiology and biochemistry), and I was hooked from the first chapter. I was able to understand it as if I was reading Harry Potter. A year later I read it again for fun as a bedtime treat. It is tremendously well organized, each chapter is logically set up so that it is easy to think back over the material to yourself and review it without the book in front of you. She explores the molecular mechanisms of action for many aspects of the GI system in good detail, and each chapter includes clinical corelates that are so perfectly related to the info you just learned that you can predict the etiology and the treatment from the symptoms. Awesome

4.0 out of 5 stars great for 1st/2nd year use February 17, 2008
Used this book for the physiology portion of my second year GI module. Just the right amount of depth. Fairly easy to read. I recommend for first/second year usage or for board review.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book for GI course December 18, 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
As a medical student I used this to study for my GI course. I found it well organized and easy to read. I used this as my primary study guide and read every page of it at least once. Did very well in my class and so far I am doing well on my USMLE practice questions over GI as well. Highly recommend.

3.0 out of 5 stars Wordy and not to the point January 11, 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I would much rather read Castanzo or Boron medical physiology books, but this has some extra details. In the grand scheme of things though, not sure they are necessary. Lang is seriously lacking organizational charts and summaries, and overall it seems tedious to use this as a resource.
