"Overall, this is an excellent book on all aspects of acute and chronic pancreatitis. It is concise yet comprehensive, written by well-known and well-published, credible authorities. It will be useful not just to the intended audience of gastroenterologists and GI surgeons, but also to all physicians involved in the care of patients with pancreatitis. Most books try to cover all aspects of this complex condition in a summary fashion, which is not possible. This book fills in the gaps by providing a focused, comprehensive review including latest evidence and guidelines. 5 Stars!" (Doody Enterprises July 2017)

"This is a definitive and authoritative work that is quite manageable to read, understand and process.
Because of that, a reader will return to it often, extending its benefits. Pancreatitis is challenging
enough without having what this book provides. This excellent contribution has indeed refreshed and
advanced my own knowledge-base by performing this review. Even the most seasoned practitioner can
garner value in its pages, and again, return to it often" Charles M. Vollmer, Jr, MD, Professor of Surgery, University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine on behalf of HPB, Summer 2017
