Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Valerie L. Ng, PhD MD(Alameda County Medical Center/Highland Hospital)
Description: This is the 21st edition of a recognized authoritative resource on all matters related to laboratory medicine. The previous edition was published in 2001.
Purpose: This book remains the recognized authoritative book for laboratory medicine. Its purpose has been to seamlessly integrate laboratory testing with clinical care. These worthy objectives are well met by this edition. Furthermore, this edition has upheld superbly the longstanding tradition of excellence associated with this book.
Audience: This book is useful for anyone involved in medicine. While the obvious loyal audience remains laboratory medicine folks (CLSs, pathologists, doctoral scientists involved in clinical laboratory testing), this book certainly would appeal to anyone who orders and interprets laboratory tests while caring for patients. In other words, this would appeal to a broad audience involved with healthcare. he authors are all recognized authorities in their respective areas.
Features: My first impression with this edition was that Henry's (as we affectionately call it) had undergone a makeover. This book is absolutely beautiful — color galore, color photomicrographs everywhere, and color gradient shaded sections corresponding to topics. The cover itself has gorgeous color pictures — for a minute there I thought I was looking at a hematology or microbiology atlas. Of course, all the excellent features expected of Henry's are here. Not only are there updates of the various sections, there are also two brand new sections, one on hemostasis and thrombosis and one on clinical pathology of cancer. A new appendix, "common chimeric genes identified in human malignancies," ought to help many of us confronted with the ever evolving alphabet soup of what to look for when evaluating which malignancy. I was quite impressed with the high quality and up-to-date content.
Assessment: This is truly a comprehensive resource for all things related to laboratory medicine. My only (minor) gripes: the print is small (8 or 10 point), and the book is heavy. But these are very minor irritations to put up with when faced with the grandeur and wealth of information contained within. Just get it.
From the Publisher
"A wonderful, clear, practical and thorough reference book for a multidisciplinary pathology laboratory. It contains a wealth of practical laboratory experience." BMA Awards 2007

"In my opinion,Clinical Diagnosis continues to be the best reference for clinical pathology. I strongly recommend it to those studying clinical pathology, as well as those interested in various aspects of interpreting laboratory tests as they apply to clinical care. I especially recommend that those owning Clinical Diagnosis older than the 20th edition should purchase this edition, since it is much improved and contains new material. Few textbooks have been published as long as Clinical Diagnosis. This edition ensures that it will continue into a second century of publication." JAMA, April 25, 2007 - Vol 297, No. 16

"This book remains the recognized authoritative book for laboratory medicine. This edition has upheld superbly the longstanding tradition of excellence associated with this book. Just get it." Doody's, March 2007

"Clinical Diagnosis continues to be the best reference for clinical pathology." JAMA, 2008

"The definitive reference in the field of clinical pathology...Required for both beginners and experts alike." JAMA

    Highly recommended

    An excellent addition to your reference library, this text offers a bounty of useful information regarding testing and disease processes. If I can't find answers in Robbins, I turn to Henry.
