Anatomy and Pathology: The Worlds Best Anatomical Charts - 4th Edition This is a second edition of a popular book on surgical pathology by the authors. Once, I started reading it, I found myself engrossed completely by its contents. This book can be best described as a concise outline of various site specific anatomic pathology of various disorders. As a non-pathologist, for me, the book contains a wealth of information in a systematic and predictable manner. The short and understandable description and clear and colored photographs make the book easy to read and comprehend. The list of references is short, appropriate and recent. My favorite chapters are on Skin, Male reproductive organs and breast.
Although, the book, I understand, is meant for medical students and residents, it should, in my opinion, be on the shelf of every physician in active practice of medicine. The print size and the format... read more

The second edition is even better than the first. The color pictures are great! It's a very practical and easy to use book. I'm currently a second year pathology resident and I use this book every time I preview my slides. It's easy to look up a diagnosis and know what should be in the differential. Also, everything is in bullet format which is great for reviewing the key points of a diagnosis. The book covers all areas of anatomic pathology. It's really a must have for me and I know I will continue to use it throughout my career.

This is an EXCELLENT book no matter whether you're a resident, fellow, or attending. The outline format makes it easier to locate the high-yield facts you're searching for. I especially like the first chapter in which they go over molecular diagnostics (we can always brush up on that), the GI chapter, Gyne chapter, and the Derm chapter. The second edition is even better with numerous color pictures. I am currently a resident and this book is on my roster of texts to entirely read before the boards. Highly recommend!
