Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Gerald A Soff, M.D.(Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine)
Description: This is a complete molecular biology guide to thrombosis and hemostasis. It is a multiauthored effort and thoroughly explores current knowledge of the field of blood coagulation.
Purpose: It serves as a reference for those scientists and clinicians with a clinical or research interest in blood coagulation. Although narrowly focused, it is well done and will add to our information resources.
Audience: It is a reference for clinical and research hematologists, and any doing research in blood coagulation. Some clinical pathologists may also find it useful.
Features: It is a well-written, well-presented text, and the figures (all black-and-white) are well done. The index is helpful, but some smaller subtopics are not indexed. The references are current and comprehensive. The overall presentation and appearance are very good.
Assessment: This will be a valuable reference for medical libraries. Only devoted students of hematology will likely buy their own copy, but those that do will find it helpful in research and education. It compares favorably to the other new thrombosis texts, but the potential audience is limited by the pure basic science focus of the text.
