As a student of esophagology for 30 years, I read this volume from cover to cover with a great deal of interest. The authors state that their aim is to provide a balanced and concise account of current thinking on the nature and problems of gastroesophageal reflux disease, which has replaced peptic ulceration as one of the most frequently encountered disorders of the upper gastrointestinal tract in the Western hemisphere. I believe they have fulfilled their objective, presenting a comprehensive view of the pathophysiology of esophagitis, its clinical features, and the appropriate diagnostic tests for evaluating and treating gastroesophageal reflux.
