"This is probably the best introductory text on Haematology I have read and I would have no hesitation in recommending it to those requiring a basic overview of the subject." Transfusion Medicine

"This is an essential book for all medical students. Don′t waste your time or money on anything else!" St. Thomas′ Gazette 1996

"Buy it if you want a thorough "roots science" understanding of the subject." Sheffield Medical Gazette 1997 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Back Cover

The Lecture Notes series is ideal for medical students, junior doctors and other allied health professionals. Lecture Notes: Haematology concentrates on providing the required core subject knowledge and has been extensively revised and updated to reflect the considerable advances in the understanding of the molecular biology and pathogenesis of haematological disorders, while continuing the tradition of successfully integrating the physiological, pathological and clinical aspects of haematology. Each chapter begins with a list of learning objectives that identifies the key elements that students need to know, whilst also taking learning to the next level. This new edition includes brief sections on the approaches to investigation and treatment of haematological problems, the underlying mechanisms and relationships concerning lymphomas and other neoplastic diseases of the bone marrow, and the rapidly changing area of bone marrow transplantation. Illustrated in full colour throughout, with new illustrations and photographs of important normal and abnormal blood cells, this eighth edition is a comprehensive guide to haematology and an essential aid for anyone who wants a concise introduction to the subject.

A Wonderful Companion for a Medical Student 20 Nov. 2010
By Blink235 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
First and foremost: I am a second year medical student at an American Allopathic Medical School. This book came highly recommended by multiple upper-classmen, but I was hesitant to buy it given that it lacked any reviews. I have come here to change that.

I can confidently say that I could not possibly be happier with my purchase. This book is clearly and thoroughly written, and seemingly difficult concepts are laid out very clearly and concisely. The text is comprehensive, and there are plenty of pictures, charts, and graphs to accompany the text for a full text on the concepts of hematology. A concept that consumed a 1 hour lecture at my institution (the classification of Lymphoid cell disorders) was conquered in a measly two pages of text in this book.

The caveat being, of course, that I cannot speak for all medical students across the country. At my particular school, this book covers EVERY concept covered in lecture and lab very handily. It is certainly possible that your school covers other topics entirely, or that this text is insufficient - regardless, I am sure that it will set a great foundation of the concepts that you will need to ace your hematology course.

The other caveat is that this books appears to be written and published in the UK. Thus, there is some vernacular that is somewhat different (ie: "Haematology" as opposed to the American spelling, "Hematology"). As you can probably tell by that example, you shouldn't have any problems making the small translations in your head.

Summary: 5 Stars for a perfect score.
Caveat: May not be comprehensive for your particular institution. Nevertheless, I am sure it will be helpful.

Happy trails, and good luck studying.
Doesn't explain the "why" very often 4 Oct. 2012
By soyouhaveanypets - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I chose this text because it seemed to be the most concise of the options for med school. It is concise, but it takes me a ton of time for me to get through because it's just giving facts without explaining why things are the way it describes, which makes it hard to read sometimes and makes it less effective as a primary heme text. It does have some good high-level organizational helps (like the different possible causes of anemia), but in general it's not intuitively organized in its presentation of topics. And some topics are explained in a very confusing and unclear way (e.g., coagulation cascade). I finally gave up on this one after giving it 2 weeks of probation.
