From the reviews:

"The goals of this textbook … were to provide state-of-the-art information on colon and rectal surgery for residents in training and for fully trained surgeons seeking recertification. Dr. Fleshman and his fellow editors should be congratulated for achieving these goals … . In summary, this book represents a succinct yet comprehensive and up-to-date review of colon and rectal surgery. It is already proving popular with our own trainees, and I suspect it will become required reading on both sides of the Atlantic." (John Hartley, Diseases of the Colon and Rectum, Vol. 51, 2008)

From the reviews of the second edition:

“The book targets the needs of trainees in colon and rectal surgery and practitioners of the specialty. It also would serve as a useful resource for gastroenterologists and an advanced source for medical students. The authorship is predominantly U.S. practitioners in colon and rectal surgery with a few international exceptions. … This is an excellent update of the authoritative reference standard for this specialty. … it achieves its goals and should be within easy reach of all practitioners and trainees in the field.” (John W. Cromwell, Doody’s Review Service, October, 2011)
