Quotes from review in the New England Journal of Medicine
"Hoffbrand, Catovsky, and Tuddenham have managed to bring together a new edition (the fifth) of Postgraduate Haemotology in every chapter of which the reader finds very good, updated discussions..."
"The editors have asked outstanding experts in every field to write new chapters or update previously included chapters."
"Most hematologists need a revised and practical textbook in which they can rapidly search on the morning of a consultation.........This book will be an important resource in such situations."
Quotes from review in the European Journal of Haematology
"...revised and transformed to appear today as the fifth edition of a modern and fully updated source of information for haematologist in training and consultants."
"The book reflects the many and challenging professional aspects of being a specia-list in blood disorders. Reading the book as part of the postgraduate education and using the book as a readily accessible source of information will definitely contri-bute to confirm doctors in training and consultants why it is right to choose and practice haematology."
"...this text undoubtedly provides an essential reference fro final-year Bsc, Msc and postgraduate research students specialising in haematology. All 1073 pages of it!"
