"This is an excellent book. It provides a well-balanced clinicohaematopathological approach to the full range of haematological conditions, leading the reader quickly to the important facts. The text and tables link the haematopathological and clinical context exceptionally well, and help the reader to understand complex and evolving areas of classification. The impressively large number of illustrations demonstrates the relevant features well, and without exception are of excellent quality. The fact sheets provide excellent summaries of clinical and pathological information. The book's range is comprehensive. The highest praise that I can offer this book is to say that, as a practising clinician who does not normally peer down the microscope, this book has whetted my appetite for improving my understanding the pathology of my field of clinical practice. I will undoubtedly use this book a great deal." BMA Awards 2007
