“The book would be interesting to pediatric and surgical students and residents with a special interest in these conditions, it will be of most interest to pediatric gastroenterology and surgical fellows and those in practice in those specialties. There are current references to new genetics and pathological information that will be of interest to selected specialists in those areas as well. … This is an excellent book that will be useful to the intended audience.” (Vincent R. Adolph, Doody's Book Reviews, August 30, 2019)
