Media Reviews
As ever the editors have put together a highly relevant and affordable package to assist the practising histopathologist through the next couple of years. Should you buy this book? Definitely yes. -- ...this latest volume of Recent Advances in Histopathology continues the successful format and high standards of its predecessors, providing up-to-date reviews on diagnostic ssues, basic science, evolving techniques, management and ethical issues in pathology. -- The Bulletin of the Royal College of Pathologists 128; October 2004 The 'Recent Advances' series from the Royal Society of Medicine Press provides timely reviews on current topics of interest to its audience, and the histopathology titles are eagerly awaited by trainees and Consultants alike. 'Recent Advances' used to be one of the key texts for trainees preparing for the MRCPath Part 1 exam, when it was said that essay questions were chosen by examiners from this book! Although the format of the Royal College of Pathologists Part 1 examination has changed from essays to multiple choice questions, the range of current interest topics presented here will still appeal to trainees, and they should still turn to 'Recent advances' in preparation for their exam. -- Richard Jones, 4 Stars: Comprehensive up-to-date review of topics in histopathogyThe tone of the book is down to earth and informative, and while expecting the reader to have a thorough basic understanding of pathologic principles, the authors make their subjects relevant and accessible, while imparting a great deal of information. The chapters are written by various authors who have experience in different areas, and the clarity and ease of their writing styles adds to the book. -- Amazon customer review, Aug 2001 4 Stars: Informative, detailed, a must for MRCPath candidatesThe contributors have considerable expertise in the areas in which they write, and although there is a large amount of information in the book, it is clearly and concisely written. Also, chapters on internet applications and telepathology broaden the scope of knowledge, which is very beneficial to both trainees in pathology, and more senior pathologists. -- Amazon customer review, Jan 2002 5 Stars: Excellent bookAn excellent book to review certain important subjects, particularly for pathology residents -- Amazon customer review, Mar 2006
