This is a very nice, concise review of the field of molecular pathology, a field that is still considered “new” because it requires training in several fields, including pathology, molecular methods, genetics, infectious disease, and tumor biology. The book provides readers with all of the relevant background in the first chapters so that specialists and nonspecialists alike can understand the later chapters. It can be read from cover to cover or used as a reference text on an “as-needed” basis. Considering the diversity of molecular pathology, the book is relatively short, 333 pages, but it provides a comprehensive review of the field. I particularly liked how each chapter highlighted all of the salient points of the subject material and then went on to illustrate many of the exceptions.
