This is a major revision of the standard textbook of haematology for medical students. 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 process.
Essential Haematology describes how advances in molecular biology, immunology, biochemistry and physiology have increased our understanding of normal blood formation and function, and how they are disturbed in different diseases. The impact of molecular biology is apparent, especially in the inherited diseases of thalassaemia, haemophilia and haemostatic defects, and in the sections dealing with growth factors and leukaemogenesis. The range of treatment available for patients continues to expand and is covered in individual chapters as well as in an expanded section on bone marrow transplantation and the management of bone marrow failure. Colour is used for clarity in line diagrams, and all blood and bone marrow appearances are now illustrated by colour photographs.
The book is suitable not only for medical students preparing for final examinations but also for post-graduates preparing for examinations in general medicine and haematology. It will also be a useful resource for nurses and other professionals involved in the care of patients with blood disease.

"...it is an excellent publication, providing a springboard into the fascinating discipline of haematology at all levels, including medical students, MRCP students and, I have to say, a superb primer for MRCPath candidates. In addition, if you have to teach medical students, the chapters in the book clearly provide the essential haematology. It remains at the top of my basic reading list."
The Bulletin of the Royal College if Pathologists
"...an excellent book, and relevant to years 1 to 5. It gives that other classic, Churchill-Livingstone's "Colour Illustrated guide to Haematology" a damn good run for its money (I'd say this one wins it by a nose)."
On previous editions:"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. The diagrams are particularly clear and pertinent, and the black & white plates are of reasonable standard for a book of this size. It is a difficult book to fault and must take first place as the undergraduates' handbook for haematology." British Medical Journal
Published Reviews of the 4th Edition
