Beautifully presented, it introduces the formation and function of blood cells and diseases that arise from dysfunction and disruption of these processes. Basic science, diagnostic tests, clinical features and management are all clearly explained.

For the first time, Essential Haematology is fully supported by a suite of online MCQs and answers, and is now available as a FREE enhanced Wiley Desktop Edition (upon purchase of the book). Thoroughly updated to reflect the latest research in this fast-moving field Contains summary boxes at the end of each chapter Includes an expanded treatment range and an expanded section on bone marrow failure and transplantation Includes a companion website at www.wiley.com/go/essentialhaematology featuring figures and tables from the book for downloading, and interactive multiple choice questions prepared by the authors

Review quote

Reviews of the previous edition: "This is a beautiful book... packed with superb colour figures, laboratory and clinical illustrations, and is magnificently laid out. The text is clearly written, contains excellent, up-to-date background science, comprehensive clinical and laboratory data and sensible advice on the management of a full range of haematological disorders. My own students were delighted to see a copy and were unanimous in their view that this is a high quality bargain." Journal of Clinical Pathology "The molecular and biochemical aspects of modern haematology are simply and clearly explained throughout, so encouraging students to read further from the comprehensive reading list at the end of each chapter...It is a difficult book to fault and must take first place as the undergraduates' handbook for haematology." British Medical Journal
