“Among the great features of this unique format is the way it provides helpful information in very short chapters on well-selected, relevant topics. It is an interesting, quick read of advice by authors who are highly respected experts in the field. This is an exceptionally innovative and stimulating book for GI clinicians and trainees who deal with patients with the sometimes exasperating conditions of IBS.”
