From the Back Cover
Cells, Tissues, and Diseases is a highly readable introduction to the etiology, morphology, and mechanisms of disease. Chapters like "The Cell as Elementary Patient" and "How Cancer Kills" illustrate the authors' emphasis on clear, straightforward - though highly sophisticated - discussions of pathologic states. References ranging from fish markets to pate de fois gras reinforce the theme that disease can be seen in all walks of life, and serve to make the information relevant and interesting. Meticulously edited bibliographies provide both student and instructor a wealth of related sources. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

So if you want to buy this book (and I highly recommend it), buy it directly from the publisher or from somewhere else.
great book for medical school! use this to understand the pathology and for knowing what's important for step 1 and robbins to fill in the missing mediators and minute details for those that want to know everything. in addition, the way the material is presented, you will remember important details because of the quirky stories and illustrated history of how the researchers made their discoveries and insights.
You may ask "If it's so good why 4 stars instead of 5?". Well, the pictures are in black and white. I like coloured books myself.
