This book, prepared for the clinician, is a comprehensive source of information about all types of cirrhosis. Historic background, experimental studies, pathology, clinical features, and treatment are covered. The author's wide personal experience and careful documentation from the literature give authority to the subject matter. The chapter on "Classification of Cirrhosis" should be especially helpful. The arrangement of material and the extensive references result in redundancy in some sections. The experimental and clinical effects of alcohol on the liver, as well as some recent therapeutic advances in management of ascites and hepatic coma, are mentioned only briefly.
