'For a general pathologist always on the look-out for a simple yet comprehensive enough text to help make sense of this challenging field, this is indeed a very helpful book and I have found it useful on many occasions. This practical tome would sit very well in the departmental library and certainly would not gather dust.' Su Enn Low, The Bulletin
