Description

This fully-revised edition of Haematology 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 will be useful for undergraduate and postgraduate students of haematology, as well as medical students and those embarking on higher professional qualifications.

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…’
