“The author and publisher are to be congratulated on another outstanding contribution to the literature on haematological malignancies, and no laboratory concerned with any aspect of their diagnosis should be without it. Highly recommended.”
British Journal of Biomedical Science

“It deserves a place on the clinician's shelf as a companion to one of the major hematology textbooks, and in the hematology laboratory as a convenient reference for abnormal morphology, quality control, and teaching.”
The Cancer Bulletin

“This book is much more than an atlas.”
