"This text certainly fulfills the stated objective and isappropriate not only for the target audience of generalpractitioners, but also for professional students and residents. Itis well organized and succinct, yet appropriately detailed andthoroughly referenced. The appendices, particularly the appendix ondifferentials for specific laboratory abnormalities, are valuableand add to the utility of this text." (American Clinical Pathology,2011)
