User and Editorial Reviews for Spencer’s Pathology of the Lung 6th Edition PDF

  1. “I believe that this book remains a classic in the field and, as such, should be a part of any pathology library and should be on the shelf of any physician who practices anatomical pathology and sees a modest to large volume of lung and pleural specimens.”
    Human Pathology
  2. “To be blunt, no currently available atlas, fascicle, or textbook approaches the excellence of this volume as a reference for pulmonary tumors … I have no doubts that great pulmonary pathology textbooks are going to be published in the future. What I honestly doubt is that they will match or surpass the quality of this one.”
    American Journal of Surgical Pathology
