“The intent is to provide a comprehensive overview of precancerous lesions of the gynecologic tract. This book serves practicing pathologists, pathology fellows, and pathology residents. It is also an invaluable resource for academic researchers, clinical colleagues (especially gynecologists), gynecology residents, as well as oncologists. … Overall, this is a practical, succinctly written, and well‐illustrated book. … It should be widely distributed to pathology and general hospital libraries.” (Shuying Ji, Doody's Book Reviews, May, 2016)
