From the reviews of the second edition:

“This white coat book is a clearly written and highly illustrated synopsis of the specific topic. For those practicing thyroid fine needle biopsies, thyroidologists and pathologists.” (Pediatric Endocrinology Reviews (PER), Vol. 9 (2), December, 2011)

“The 11 chapters in this book cover all the information necessary for the proper evaluation of thyroid fine needle aspirations (FNAs). … Practicing cytopathologists who will be evaluating thyroid FNAs are the intended audience. … It is also an excellent source of information for residents and students interested in the field. … The concise, clear text, accompanied by an abundance of quality images, makes it an essential reference for evaluating thyroid FNAs. This edition clearly outlines and explains the new reporting guidelines.” (Jamie L. Porter, Doody’s Book Reviews, August, 2010)
