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).

Great Book August 7, 2011
I loved this textbook. I found it extremely useful in my second year of med school and continued to reference it while reviewing for USMLE 1 and during my ward rotations. It is concise and has great illustrations. It has a nice balance of basic science materials and clinical correlations. I have found this textbook to be very detailed for undergraduate studies. I think the book is clear and precise.
