“This is, simply, my favorite GI surgery ebook. I found it valuable as a senior resident, and I anticipate that it will be valuable in the future as the landscape of surgery changes. The foresight to include new surgical technologies, such as the POEM or the Magnetic Sphincter Augmentation Device (Linx), underscores the authors’ commitment to remaining current rather than focusing just on the tried and true surgical options. This is a complete ebook which, while perhaps lacking some of the more detailed molecular level information found in others, is an excellent resource for practicing surgeons or senior residents seeking to become expert in the field of GI surgery.” — Peter Nau, MD, MS, FACS (University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics) — Doody’s Score: 94, 4 Stars!
