Essential Haematology, Includes Desktop Edition, 6th Edition (EHEP002323) cover image
Essential Haematology is established as the most authoritative introduction to haematology. 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. The book outlines the basic principles of clinical and laboratory haematology and shows how manifestations of blood diseases can be explained by new knowledge of the disease processes.

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).

"I recommend this no longer small masterpiece to all who would like to know more about haematology but do not have the good fortune or time to become card-carrying haematologists." (The Bulletin of The Royal College of Pathologists, 1 January 2012)

"This is a great introductory book on clinical hematology. I'd recommend it for anyone early in their medical training or practice, or for any established practitioner wanting a quick refresher course in the subject." (Doody's, 2 September 2011)

"Recommended by the British Medical Journal and supported by an online suite of resources, this well-resented full-colour text offers a comprehensive introduction to the creation and functioning of the major blood cells." (Times Higher Education Supplement, 24 February 2011)

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)
