Path Bites Anthology

615 page ebook, full-color photomicrographs.
Individual price $19.50

This is our biggest, newest book. It is composed of over 500 little essays based on the past 5 years of our popular Path Bites daily newsletter. Each “bite” is around a page or so, and takes just a few minutes to read. The book is organized in the same order as Robbins, and is updated with information and reference pages from the newest (9th) edition of Robbins. There are tons of photos and useful, if a little weird, mnemonics and memory aids.

What students have said:

  • “I love Path Bites. So helpful. It’s great to learn something worthwhile every day.”
  • “I am really thankful to you for Path Bites. Drop by drop fills the pot.”
  • “I’ve been following Path Bites for about a year or so now. Just wanted to say keep up the good work. I decided to write this because you actually made me laugh about Listeria! Anyone who can do that deserves some recognition!”
  • “Good emphasis. Better than Kaplan.”
  • “Path Bites have gotten me many, many questions on tests this past year (especially during Heme/Onc), so thank you for all of the hard work you’ve put into helping other people understand pathology. I’m sure that many future physicians will be calling on knowledge you’ve helped them to assimilate when treating their patients. Thank you again for all your help!”
  • “I love how concise, full of good information, and humorous all your Path Bites are! Keep it up!”

The Complete (But Not Obsessive) Hematopathology Guide

113 page ebook, full-color photomicrographs.
Individual price $18.50

This is a thorough but not-too-detailed study guide that covers all the anemias, leukemias, and lymphomas that you’ll need to know for your pathology course (and for boards), plus other stuff (like a review of lab tests and morphology,  answers to typical questions you’ll be asked by attendings, and a reference section with all the important CD markers, stains, and cytogenetic changes).

What students have said:

  • “I am in my last semester and carry the books where ever I go!!!!”
  • “I think it is absolutely genius! This is so much better than reading through a dense textbook.”
  • “You strike the perfect balance between detail and convenience. I will definitely use this to study for boards.”
  • “Your book on hematopathology is excellent. My pathology exam here in Sicily is on February 25 and it helped very much.”
  • “This is great. I’m using it as one of my resources for hemepath rotation – really useful. Thanks!!”
  • “I am an osteopathic medical student and we just covered all the skin, blood and lymph material over the last few months. What I enjoyed most was the conciseness of the pdf and the straightforward reasoning. I do read Robbins when I have time but the vastness of this material was becoming stressful so I looked for something less voluminous and I came across these study guides on your website. So thank you and I will be using them when I take both the USMLE and COMLEX step 1 come here in June.”

Clot or Bleed: A Painless Guide for People Who Hate Coag

52 page ebook, nice diagrams and illustrations.
Individual price $18.50

Coagulation can be confusing, to say the least. This guide demystifies coag with easy-to-understand descriptions of clotting and anti-clotting, an explanation of laboratory tests, and succinct but complete reviews of bleeding disorders (like von Willebrand disease) and thrombotic disorders (like factor V Leiden). It’s short and complete, and it has tons of helpful mnemonics, charts and tables.

What students have said:

  • “I’ve read it. I no longer hate coag!!”
  • “I really liked the coag book, very easy to understand. I graduated in August and now am working in a hospital with a surgery/trauma team. I am using the book so I can understand the clotting system in general as well as how the meds like heparin and lovenox work since we use them on every pt. Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge! It truly has helped me understand things I thought I would never get!”
  • “I am reading your Clot or Bleed. I wish to know English better to express my gratitude for such a precious gift.”
  • “Everything about it is great and convenient.”
  • “The explanations are very helpful and succinct – brilliant.”
  • “It’s perfect for students.”
  • “Your books helped me very much, especially, Clot or Bleed. It is a lot easier to remember the material if it is in lack of a better word, “dumbed” down for you.”
  • “It expresses your unquestionable professional talent and your delicious sense of humour.”
