Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Intended for practicing hematologists and trainees in the field, this volume serves as a guide for use in the diagnostic hematology laboratory. Covers methods of collection of blood specimens, blood film preparation and staining, the principles of manual and automated blood counts and the assessment of the morphological features of blood cells. Additions to the 1995 edition include updated information, increased guidance on further tests that should be performed for any given provisional diagnosis, details on the role of immunophenotyping, and cytogenetic and molecular genetic techniques. Abundantly illustrated with color plates throughout, as well as useful charts, tables, diagrams, and end-of-chapter test questions. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

From The Critics
Reviewer: Valerie L. Ng, PhD MD(Alameda County Medical Center/Highland Hospital)
Description: This is the third edition of a comprehensive book devoted to the all aspects of peripheral blood examinations — from blood collection to the complete blood count (automated versus manual), preparation, examination and interpretation of peripheral blood smears.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a book that meets the needs and bridged all scientific and clinical interfaces of practicing hematologists, biomedical scientists and trainees, and laboratory scientists. These are worthy objectives that are met by the author (an internationally recognized authority in this field) in exemplary fashion.
Audience: This book would be useful to anyone in practice who reviews peripheral smears or is involved in analysis of the peripheral blood (e.g., practicing hematologists, hematopathologists, pathologists, clinical laboratory scientists) as well as anyone in training to pursue such a career (internal medicine or pathology/laboratory medicine residents, or clinical laboratory scientist or medical laboratory technician students).
Features: This nine chapter book covers everything you might ever want to know about peripheral blood collection and analysis. It starts with a concise and well illustrated chapter on phlebotomy, then moves directly into methods for analyzing blood. An exceptionally strong feature of this book is the incomparable and extensive collection of color photomicrographs of virtually every type of abnormality detectable in peripheral blood. Many of these disease states are accompanied by scattergrams generated by automated peripheral blood analyzers — a nice way to correlate instrument findings with morphology. I was personally ecstatic to stumble across a series of photomicrographs that demonstrated the fine distinctions between "look-alike" inclusions that frequently stump an experienced morphologist (e.g., intracytoplasmic erlichiosis, histoplasmosis, Penicillium marnefeii and Chediak-Higashi inclusions).
Assessment: This is a great book. I would highly recommend it to anyone who spends any time analyzing peripheral blood. I know I will use it heavily in my clinical practice and associated teaching activities!

Meet the Author

Professor Bain's research interests are ethnic and other biological differences in haematological variables and cytogenetics in relation to haematological malignancy. She has a major interest in teaching, both undergraduate and postgraduate, as well as in the development of teaching resources such as videos, slide sets, websites and CD-ROMs and the development of teaching courses for haematologists, haematology trainees haematopathologists, medical laboratory scientists and cytogeneticists. Amongst other collaborations with experts in the field, she has devised the WHO classification of tumours of the lymphoid haemopoietic systems.
