I absolutely loved this book! It was so comprehensive, clear and easy to understand. I loved the "font" size and the dark print that headed the chapters, making it easier to read.

I found that it answered any/all questions a patient might have concerning "bypass" surgery.

I feel that this book should be made mandatory for every patient/person to read before attempting this "life changing" surgery and should be in all physician's offices around the world.

Great job Nicholson and Blackwood! At this point, thank goodness I don't need a bariatric surgeon but should things change, I now know where to find the best one.
