"Its purpose is to address common misconceptions about colonic disease and to answer commonly posed questions using the latest clinical evidence. The editor and writers have clearly met this objective. This format is a major appeal of the book because the questions are interesting, relevant, and often challenging, and the answers are excellent. The book is supplemented by excellent tables and high-quality histologic, endoscopic, and radiologic photographs, many in color. I recommend this book for gastroenterologists, primary care doctors, fellows in training, and even medical residents and students. This book is a real winner because of its format, ease of use, and relevance. It's not often that I can say a medical book is "fun," but this one is."

"The unique conversational Q&A format utilized by Drs. Cash and Farraye in this book and in this series as a whole manages to present very relevant clinical information in a way that is easy to read and that facilitates the retention of the information. I believe this book would benefit not only first year fellows who are just beginning their training, but also third year fellows who are preparing for boards. Beyond its utility to trainees, this book also would be an asset to both general practitioners and practicing gastroenterologists."

"With its many useful tables and images and the question and answer format provides an easy to use reference. The aim is to make this information applicable to clinical practice. The book succeeds admirably, by and large achieving these lofty goals. This handy reference contains concise and easily readable answers to a host of the many curbside questions about the colon that GI clinicians are confronted with on a daily basis. My copy is already well thumbed and wills serve as a useful teaching tool."

"Most of the questions posed have responses that are well worth the 2 minutes it takes to read. The themes and questions addresses in this book are absolutely important, expertly addressed and easy to follow. I envision a Gastrointestinal Physician Assistant or a third year medical student benefiting as much as the overwhelmed private gastroenterologist."
