This edition updates the second...Within chapters, topics and their corresponding sections and subsections are readily identified by means of an eye-catching combination of bulleting and boldface, underlined, and italicized text. The content is well written, concise, and easy to read; well organized tables summarize important concepts...well illustrated. This book has broad applicability and will be a valuable guide for subspecialists in chest medicine, as well as for pathologists, internists, and surgeons.--New England Journal of MedicineIt is...an admirable feat that the editors of the recently released 3rd edition...were able to create a text that weighs in a few pages less than the preceding edition, yet is every bit as comprehensive. The editors of the latest edition have improved upon an already excellent text by streamlining it, condensing several related chapters into one where appropriate. ...Richly illustrated, detailed discussions of diseases... The thoroughness with which the chapter on occupational lung disease covers such a diverse group of diseases...is indeed remarkable. The benefit of a multiauthored text such as this is that each chapter is authored by an individual or individuals with truly specialized expertise. ...The photomicrographs are beautiful examples of the diseases they depict. Where "Thurlbeck's" excels is in its rigorous exploration of all facets of pulmonary and pleural pathology by recognized authorities in the field. The topics are presented in a way that is remarkably as inviting for those just embarking on the study of pulmonary pathology as it is engaging for the more seasoned reader. Serious students of pulmonary pathology or those whose goal is to become one would do well to invest in this comprehensive resource on pulmonary pathology.--American Journal of Surgical PathologyWith the large number of excellent textbooks that currently address pulmonary pathology, one could question whether another text in this field is necessary.
