It is appropriate for medical students, residents, hematology/oncology fellows, internists, family practitioners, pediatricians, and, more broadly, anyone interested in gleaning concise information on the subject.
This easy-to-use book is well conceived and very well organized such that in a few pages, readers can get all the information there is to learn about the practical aspects of the most common hematological diseases. The 28 chapters provide up-to-date information on a wide variety of topics that range from iron and vitamin deficiency, anemia, bone marrow failure syndromes, myeloproliferative disorders, leukemias, and lymphomas. The book also includes chapters on blood transfusion, hemochromatosis, and consultative hematology. Of note, it includes two very useful chapters on how to interpret standard hematological tests as well as one on the basic principles and clinical applications of flow cytometry. Where appropriate, there are illustrations and tables that make a topic easy to read and understand. Finally, each chapter is well documented with citations to relevant and current references in the literature to make this handbook a well-rounded companion.
