Editorial Reviews

Review

From the reviews of the sixth edition:

“A comprehensive gynecologic pathology textbook, this edition has numerous upgrades and updates from the 2002 edition. … This book is superb for pathologists in training (residents and fellows), but it is practicing surgical pathologists who will find it most useful. … A beautifully illustrated and extensively updated essential reference, this sixth edition is a must-have for practicing pathologists who interpret gynecologic specimens. … this logically organized, practically useful book is well worth the investment and solidifies its position on the pathologist’s desk.” (Maura F. O’Neil, Doody’s Review Service, April, 2011)

From the Back Cover

Since the publication of the 1/e in 1977, Blaustein's Pathology of the Female Genital Tract has consolidated its position as the leading textbook of gynecological pathology. An essential reference for all pathologists and residents, this thoroughly updated Sixth Edition includes more than 1500 illustrations in color, informative tables and 28 revised chapters written by internationally recognized experts.

Top Customer Reviews

The sixth edition of this text is a marked improvement over the last edition. While the text of the last edition was also very well-written, it was unfortunately plagued by black and white photographs, which made it unpopular with residents who are fond of glossy colorful pictures.

The new Blaustein's compensates for the inadequacies of the previous edition in all aspects. The images are impeccable, appropriately sized, perfectly color-balanced, and numerous. There is color on almost every page. The figures are easily referenced in the text. The text itself is completely up-to-date, and, written as expected by some of the most illustrious figures in the field of gynecologic pathology (Kurman, Ronnett, and Young, to name a few). As with most multi-authored textbooks, some chapters are better written than others; this is generally author-dependent. The quality of the binding and paper is superb.

A few parting thoughts:

I wish there were more tables and possibly algorithmic flow charts (particularly useful when dealing with differential diagnoses). Although I really dislike the particular font size of the text, I recognize this is a matter of taste. Finally, there is a trend these days towards including a CD-rom or having a code linked to online access to the text and images. While these might increase the price, this is something worth considering the next time.

Overall, an outstanding job!

A ginecopathology book is a must for everybody as any pathologist sees those kind of specimens every day; during my residency I frecuently used this book and for me, it has any necessary information. The only "contra" of the old edition was the photoes, all black and white. I waited to purchase the new edition and when it came, I was pleasantly surprised that now the book has colours, the photoes as well. The price is not so high for this volume, it's another "plus".

Excellent reference text of the female genital tract. The only problem I have is that the histopathology image pictures tend to be a bit too small. But overall, the pictures are of great quality and the book as a reference is awesome. I woould highly recommend to general surgical pathologists and surgical pathology fellows.

A very good book and a significant improvement in layout and style over the previous edition. We need to get online access to the book when we buy it though. Please do that for the next edition even if it means paying more for it.
