“This is an updated and thorough description of various techniques in liver surgery accompanied by a large collection of well-chosen and well-reproduced intraoperative photographs. … because of its specialized nature and emphasis on surgical techniques, the book is more appropriate for surgeons and advanced surgical trainees. … The best feature of this book is the large collection of color illustrations of intraoperative images.” (Carlos H.
