Invariably any quest for a desired object, be it a yearned-for sports car, a pet boa, or a silvered disk flashing a spectrum of colors, requires an objective approach before purchase. The first viewing often leads to a desirable acquisition, which then becomes an inseparable necessity.

The 2001 update of the first, 1998, edition of the Gastroenterology Teaching Project CD-ROM features colorful new images, imaginative graphs, and informative legends. The abundant images (1624), accessible from a menu of 16 carefully chosen categories, give only an inkling of the CD's value. Three new units, "Colorectal Neoplasia—Genetics and Prevention," "Clinical Nutrition," and "Short Bowel Syndrome," reassure the recipient, learner, and teacher that one is as up-to-date as with most recent textbooks. While many of the 3000 citations are within the span of a decade, most are classic references that have withstood the ravages of time and critical peer review.
