Education is an admirable thing, but it is well to remember from time to time that nothing that is worth knowing can be taught.—Oscar Wilde

As is implied in the rather ambitious subtitle, Rubin's Pathology: Clinicopathologic Foundations of Medicine aims to present information that is “worth knowing” in applied pathology to its intended audience: medical students, pathology trainees, and others who have an interest in this nexus of basic science and clinical medicine. In this regard, the book seems to be on target.
