What a pleasure to asked to write a review of the second edition of a book that I recommend to patients with inflammatory bowel disease and their families on a regular basis... The strength of this book remains the easy to read, comfortable style of Dr. Saibil.... There are many practical tips and suggestions in this volume that will allow patients to understand their role in dealing with common problems they are likely to encounter. I will continue to suggest this book to my patients who are looking for a source of information that is reliable, thorough, and easy to understand.--Ford Bursey, MD, FRCPC, FACP, Associate Professor "Crohn's and Colitis Foundation of Canada "
