Review

Winner, First Prize in Gastroenterology, British Medical Association 2007 Book Awards

"Clearly THE book to go to for up-to-date and authoritative information on gastrointestinal tract and liver conditions." - JAMA, review of the 8th Edition

"A comprehensive reference for general gastroenterologists as well as more specialized practitioners in gastroenterology and hepatology." - Gut, review of the 8th Edition

''This is a classical textbook which has assisted many generations of gastroenterologists, internists, surgeons, family practitioners and students to gain knowledge in the extensive field of gastroenterology and hepatology... The quality of scientific information together with the practical approach... make it a valuable tool not only for specialists in gastroenterology, but also for physicians in connected specialities and for medical students as well.'' - Brîndusa Diaconu, December 2010

"Two volumes, 2300 pages, 127 chapters, more than 200 contributing authors, and a companion review and assessment book continue to make this textbook a MUST HAVE for every practicing gastroenterologist and hepatologist.  The most exciting aspect of this textbook for the practicing clinician is the online availability of this 9th edition via expertconsult.com.  This massive text is no longer merely a shelf shocker, but it will now be at the instant disposal of every practicing gastroenterologist." - Michael Sossenheimer, MD, PhD, Practical Gastroentology

"Written by >200 international authors, most of whom are recognized authorities on their topic, it provides an authoritative overview of the scientific background and clinical practice of gastrointestinal (GI) and liver disorders that will be of greatest value to practicing and academic gastroenterologists and GI fellows, but also GI surgeons, pathologists, and internists.  The 9th edition of Sleisenger and Fordtran's is a beautifully written and edited textbook that serves to maintain its stature as the definitive work within its field.  Although the role of medical textbooks is being redefined in the age of electronic media, this current, authoritative, comprehensive reference should be on the shelf of every practicing gastroenterologist to address the numerous questions that arise on almost a daily basis that cannot necessarily be addressed by an electronic search." - Kenneth R. McQuaid, Department of Medicine, University of California San Francisco, Gastroentology

5.0 out of 5 stars Best ever, but only for professionals 7 Mar 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is a must for all gastroenterologists. Up to date, usually very precise, referencef are great. This is by far the best and most comprehensible textbook of Gastroenteology of all times and a credit to the American health system that produces some of the best and worst in Medicine.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great resource, Website Expert Consult is a joke 25 Feb 2011
By An Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Great book all 50 pounds of it, lol! Seriously, I love having this reference.

4 stars out of 5 because the Expert Consult online website that accompanies this (for updates or reading online), is annoying, slow, too many menus, too many sidebars (that take up screen real estate even on an iPad), & crashes a lot.

The Expert Consult website is programmed very poorly:
1. PC = Broken links on all references & crashes on Internet Explorer or Firefox.
2. MAC: broken links on all references & crashes on Safari or Firefox.
3. iPAD: broken links on all references & crashes on Safari or Atomic Browser.

When you click the back button on any of these systems or browsers, it loses where you were, & drops you to the home page of the website (completely boots you out of the book you were reading). There is no bookmark capability.

Too much javascript which I detest, as its slows many websites. You'd think these programmers would learn finally, that javascript stinks (I think they are just lazy, as javascript is easy to write). Or else they're just stupid. Yes really.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent gastroenterology reference 5 Aug 2010
By NP - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I bought this for my second year of GI fellowship. The authors are from top institutions around US and there are a few foreign authors. The 3 chapters I've read so far have all been excellent. Two things I particularly like about this edition: the online access to expertconsult which provides access to the book anywhere with an internet connection with your own account; and the extensive references in the online site, which helps you to find out where a particular factoid was taken from. Highly recommended.
