From reviews:

'...This haematology textbook seems to achieve the impossible: it is short in length, broad in scope and yet
does not restrict itself to basic facts. Its other great strength is an extremely readable, clear and consistent
prose. This makes it stand out from textbooks compiled by editors but where different authors contribute
each chapter...'
Royal College of Pathologists Bulletin number 157, January 2012

This fully-revised edition of Haematology provides an up-to-date review of the scientific principles which
underpin understanding of the blood and blood-forming tissues in health and disease. It describes how
advances in biochemistry, physiology, genetics and cell biology have contributed to the study of blood and its
disorders. The book is written in an approachable style that focuses on improving understanding and
encourages students to think around the subject. The numerous illustrations and defined learning objectives
are designed to aid effective learning, while the many 'fast facts' boxes broaden the interest and perspective
of the material. Further reading lists and website information guide students to more detailed coverage if
required.
This book should prove useful for undergraduate and postgraduate students of haematology, as well as
medical students and those embarking on higher professional qualifications.

Product Description

Review

Recommended to organizers and students of BSc (Biomedical Sciences) courses in the developing countries. -- Transactions Highly readable, informative and topical text. This book series is 'pitched' at the first and second year biomedical science undergraduate, but the scope of this particular text extends well beyond this audience. This book should be highly recommended as a key basic text for all life-science students studying haematology. Furthermore, it merits inclusion on the shelf of the haematology department to support work-based training and education. --Journal of Biomedical Science

This haematology textbook seems to achieve the impossible: it is short in length, broad in scope and yet does not restrict itself to basic facts. Its other great strength is an extremely readable, clear and consistent prose. This makes it stand out from textbooks compiled by editors but where different authors contribute each chapter. It declares itself useful for undergraduate and postgraduate students of haematology . It is successful in this claim, largely because each chapter provides a background from the pre-clinical disciplines (e.g. biochemistry, embryology, physiology) before the pathophysiological and clinical features of relevant diseases are discussed. It is hard for the junior reader to come adrift amongst the detail: clear learning objectives are stated at the start of each chapter, along with a summary of key facts. Judicious use of subject boxes, summary tables and figures reinforce and compartmentalise the information to make it more accessible. For more advanced students, suggested further reading and self-assessment questions help to identify and fill knowledge gaps. Emphasis is given to the historical context in which haematology has developed as a field. This is essential to demystify the hierarchy of classification systems, e.g. for acute myeloid leukaemia, as well as to appreciate fully the knowledge explosion resulting from recent advances in molecular biology. What is it not? It is not a clinical manual, and as such this textbook may also prove useful to biomedical scientists. It has relatively little photographic or practical laboratory content, and so will not be sufficient for those preparing for laboratory data interpretation or practical examinations. The authors have taken great effort in ensuring content is as up to date as possible for a printed textbook, but in fast-moving areas, the book would be complemented with journal reviews of breaking news . It is ideal as a reference throughout haematology specialist training, in particular for those studying for the FRCPath Part 1 examinations. It will be useful to any student interested in haematology, as well as for established haematologists needing a reminder of a sub-specialist area outside their own. It will certainly not be getting dusty on my shelf! --Bulletin of the Royal College of Pathologists, Dec 2011

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing 7 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase
I gave this book 5/5 stars because it is covers a wide range of topics associated with haematology. I used this book to learn about the origins and production of white and red cells as well as the degradation of the cells to help provide nutrients to the body. I would certainly recommend this book to fellow Biomedical Science students.
