The shelves are full of annuals, occasionals, and irregulars, with as much spectrum of quality as in any group of books. But this one is better than many, and it is generally respected by pathologists. It scores well on what I would expect a busy but scientifically interested internist should want. This is not the medium for debating how an internist basically should think or how clinical a pathologist can get.
The "interest score" for pathologists (assigning one to four points for each essay) is 43 on my scale, and for internists, 23. Those who are academically occupied will relate more to the former score; primary physicians to the latter.
Of the best groupings of articles for this type of book, the articles on grafts and transplantation ("Immunologic Enhancement of Normal Tissue Grafts," "The Pathology of Organ Transplantation in Man," and "The Pathologist and the Kidney Transplant") are most appropriate.
