From the reviews of the second edition:"This second edition deals only with gross pathology of the basic and most common lesions seen in placentas by naked eye examination. . This atlas will be used primarily by pathology residents and medical students interested in placental pathology. . This is a beautifully produced atlas of gross placental pathology which deserves to be kept handy in pathology dissecting rooms and delivery rooms of all major hospitals. . It will be used by pathologists, pathology assistants, and obstetricians, as well as their trainees." (Ivan Damjanov, Doody's Review Services, January, 2009)
