The new Guide to the Guidelines book series is now available. The book offers insights to the ACG clinical practice guidelines, and is authored by Brennan Spiegel, MD, MSHS, FACG, and Hetal A. Karsan, MD, FACG. Both authors have served as editors and contributors to The American Journal of Gastroenterology, and started this three volume project after seeing a strong desire among clinicians to learn the ACG guidelines in efficient, accessible, and fun way.

Each chapter of the Guide to the Guidelines series includes carefully selected vignettes designed to illustrate key concepts from the guidelines, followed by a conversation-style discussion written to keep you awake and alert.
