Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Valerie L. Ng, PhD MD(Alameda County Medical Center/Highland Hospital)
Description: This relatively slim book is a surprisingly comprehensive look at hematology from a pathophysiological perspective.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a pathophysiological and mechanistic approach to hematology.
Audience: Although written for second-year medical students, this would be useful as an introductory textbook for allied health trainees. In addition, it would be useful to anyone practicing medicine and wanting as a quick and concise review of hematology. The author is well respected for his expertise in hematology.
Features: The book is only 171 pages long, but it manages to touch on virtually all aspects of hematology. Admittedly, this breadth of coverage is associated with relatively superficial discussions, and readers should be aware that it cites no references. However, the book is visually pleasing, making good use of color to delineate and reinforce teaching points. Photomicrographs are exemplary with relatively faithful good color reproduction. The entire text also is available online, completely searchable by keyword, with figures that can be easily downloaded to teaching slides. It is unique in that it is written by a single author; one can easily see how this book is a perfect for the author's use in teaching second-year medical students. A few other hematology books aimed at this same student population have recently been published (Essential Haematology, 6th edition, Hoffbrand and Moss (Wiley-Blackwell, 2011), Hematology in Clinical Practice, 5th edition, Hillman et al. (McGraw-Hill, 2011), Pathophysiology of Blood Disorders, Bunn and Aster (McGraw-Hill, 2011)) and, while all are superb, somehow Bunn and Aster's is the best at unifying and simplifying findings and concepts from basic and translational science in an incredibly complex array of diseases.
Assessment: This would be a great book for teaching second-year medical students, or very useful as a concise review of hematology.
