    Published Reviews 'Much easier to read' was the important conclusion I came to, having spent a little time looking at the latest edition of 'Jubb and Kennedy'. The relatively simple step of increasing line spacing, and the use of subheadings and bullet points, makes reading any of the volumes of this edition much less daunting. The contents are arranged into 'body systems', and include aspects of the incidence and manifestation of different diseases in different tissues and organs. The improved format will ensure that it will continue to be used by pathologists, perhaps in particular, those undergoing training; some introductory sections bring together a lot of useful, as well as interesting, background information.
