Published Reviews

".I would highly recommend this book to all pathologists, especially those working towards the Part 2 exam. I believe it could be of educational value, whether you choose to read the text cover to cover, or use it to flick through and look at some of the beautifully presented images."

-Dr Hannah Hawrot (Bulletin of the Royal College of Pathologists, January 2021)
