Recommendations for the next edition:
1. even more pictures
2. even more charts comparing diseases or features
3. inset boxes with key features in each disease
Minor errors are fairly frequent (typos, references to figures are sometimes incorrect, etc.)
The multi-authored nature of this book causes some problems. Authors' personal approaches to given topics stand out in distracting ways. For example, the placenta chapter reads like unpublished research and is of little use. Other authors took an interesting approach to tumors of the lung. The topics develop from bronchoscopy to gross findings and then and build on that to integrate microscopy. It is clearly based on their thought-process and diagnostic approach to lung specimens. Very different than merely organizing by histologic morphology like the rest of the book.
The neuro chapter is a disaster. It does not correctly reflect the WHO diagnostic guidelines. The author tried to create numerous helpful tables rather than easy to read/understand prose. So the text forces you to use the tables which are erroneous anyway. So the whole chapter becomes unusable.
I seem to recall that I was unable to find a discussion of the various types of neuromas (Morton, traumatic, etc.) anywhere in this book.
The bone and soft tissue chapters need many more photomicrographs to illustrate the morphologic variety that any one entity may have.Read more ›
