Cells, Tissues, and Disease is a highly readable introduction to the etiology, morphology, and mechanisms of disease. Chapters like "The Cell as Elementary Patient" and "How Cancer Kills" illustrate the authors' emphasis on clear, straightforward--though highly sophisticated--discussions of pathologic states. References ranging from fish markets to pate de fois gras reinforce the theme that disease can be seen in all walks of life, and serve to make the information relevant and interesting. Meticulously edited bibliographies provide both student and instructor a wealth of related sources.

"...the text is ideally suited to students of biomedical science, who will find it useful as a core textbook connecting pathology and the multiple biomedical science disciplines."
British Journal of Biomedical Science
"I found it hard to stop reading this book, because I enjoyed the prose, the style and the content so much. Important insights on each subject kept my anticipation high. This is a book I will come back to again and again. I will savor the opportunity to reread it - an unusual response to a medical textbook."
The New England Journal of Medicine
"This is an excellent monograph covering all aspects of general pathology...Its price represents excellent value for a text of this size and quality. I strongly recommend this book."
Journal of the Royal College of Pathologists, Australia
"This outstanding book fills a distinct void in the pathology literature...this book is a master work."
"This is a well written and very thoughtful book, well illustrated and generously referenced..."
"Overall, as a non-pathologist, I found the text stimulating...it would certainly act as a rich source of inspiration for teaching biochemistry to pre-clinical medical students."
"This is a masterwork of a textbook written by a most inspiring teacher and his life companion. It should be read by all academic pathologists, but also by other clinicians and basic scientists involved in the education of medical students."
