Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Valerie L. Ng, PhD MD(Alameda County Medical Center/Highland Hospital)
Description: This fifth edition of a comprehensive textbook on clinical laboratory hematology includes access to a web site with additional related material. The previous version was published in 2005.
Purpose: It is intended as a comprehensive textbook of clinical hematology for medical laboratory scientist (MLS) or technician (MLT) student, or faculty teaching them.
Audience: This book is perfect for MLSs and other allied health professions students interested in clinical laboratory hematology. A subset of the chapters would be appropriate for MLTs, as some of the MLS-directed material may be too dense. And of course, this book is a great teaching aid for MLS/MLT instructors. Finally, this book would be useful to MLSs or MLTs in practice wanting to update their skills. The author is well known for her expertise and ability to create superb teaching materials for medical laboratory science training.
Features: It covers all you ever wanted to know about clinical hematology. It is comprehensive and can stand alone in the way it includes related topics not always part of the hematology division of a clinical laboratory (e.g., phlebotomy, general laboratory safety, laboratory statistics, coagulation testing). The book is physically beautiful with spectacular use of color — one to highlight learning objectives, another for case studies, another for review questions, etc. The figures are stunning — rich in content, colorful, clear, and simple in concept. The text has been updated to reflect changes since the previous edition, most notably the inclusion of the WHO 2008 acute leukemia classifications, updated information on iron metabolism and advances in molecular testing. A nice section on automated hematology included the chronological review of automated hematology and coagulation analyzers that I really liked. A few disappointments: some of the color photomicrographs do not have faithful color reproduction (dark or heavily tinted blue backgrounds), I couldn't find the accompanying full manual procedures in CLSI format on the website, and it wasn't obvious to me that the malaria procedure was consistent with the CDC's recommendations to examine 100-300 oil immersion fields because I couldn't find the complete procedure on the website to verify.
Assessment: Overall, this is a very useful book for MLSs or MLTs in training, and would be a useful review for those in practice.
