Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Valerie L. Ng, PhD, MD (Alameda County Medical Center/Highland Hospital)
Description: This is the fourth edition of a comprehensive textbook of clinical hematology.
Purpose: This book was written for clinical laboratory scientist (CLS) or clinical laboratory technologist (CLT) students. The author has succeeded admirably.
Audience: This book would be ideal for CLS or CLT students, and medical students, pathology and/or laboratory medicine residents would also find this book useful. The practicing pathologist, CLS or clinical hematologist might also be interested.
Features: This hardcover book consists of 27 chapters devoted to clinical hematology. This new edition contains relevant updates in clinical hematology:e.g., the WHO classification of leukemias, lymphomas and myelodysplastic disorders:as well as advances in molecular techniques applied to various hematological disorders. The chapters are quite complete and include illustrative diagrams or representative photomicrographs. Each chapter begins with a title page showing the chapter objectives and ends with a set of case studies followed by a self assessment exam. The center of the book contains a comprehensive set of color photomicrographs of virtually all hematological conditions and their appearance in the peripheral blood or bone marrow. I must admit that I would have liked to have seen more color photomicrographs scattered throughout the book, but perhaps this simply reflects the attitude of a spoiled hematologist. The last chapter on laboratory automation is particularly well written and helpful. This information is not widely available, yet represents the daily workhorses of the average clinical hematology laboratory. An endearing feature is the appendix containing protocols and recipes for manual cell counts (does anyone do these anymore?).
Assessment: This is a really nice book on clinical hematology and is comparable to other accepted authoritative texts in this field.
An entry-level course text for students in medical laboratory science and related fields. Each chapter begins with a topical outline and behavioral objectives, and concludes with review questions. Previously published in 1988 and 1993; the third edition enlarges the coverage of anemia, culling discussions into separate chapters gathered into a separate section, and updates other topics.
