The authors have succeeded in producing a classic book on radiology of the small bowel. The book consists of 21 chapters dealing with the radiologic appearance of a host of conditions involving the small bowel, including malabsorption, inflammatory diseases, tumors, involvement by systemic diseases, etc. There is a chapter on the small bowel in infants and children by John Moseley and Jack Rabinowitz, and a delightful chapter on some uncommon lesions of the small bowel by Dr. Arthur Clemett. The book is up to date and conveys a great deal of medical as well as radiologic information. The text is concise, lucid, and beautifully written. The illustrations are of superb quality and the entire text is luxuriously illustrated.
