"The purpose is to bring awareness to the mini gastric bypass (MGB). ... this book is written for practicing bariatric surgeons seeking to introduce the MGB to their practice or bariatric surgery fellows who are getting inadequate exposure to this operation during their training. ... This is a nice book for surgeons considering adding this operation to their armamentarium of weight loss procedures. It does a nice job of introducing the surgery and describing what makes it successful." (Peter Nau, Doody's Book Reviews, September, 2018)
