“This is one of a series of books pulling together the current thought about and understanding of the myriad of diseases that can impact the gastrointestinal system. … The audience is broad, including clinicians in training, experienced physicians who are looking for a refresher and an update on current thinking, and many other medical and ancillary personnel who wish to learn more about these seemingly overlapping problems. … The chapters are well researched, with numerous figures and extensive references.” (Vincent F. Carr, Doody’s Book Reviews, May, 2017)
