This volume is a text-atlas designed for hematologists, pathologists and laboratory staff in training and in practice. The first edition was published by Times Mirror and sold 3000 copies. This edition is changed substantially; the chapters on technical aspects that originally introduced the book are now integrated into consistent sections to cover what the disease is, what films to obtain, which counts to do, differential diagnosis, and which further tests should now be performed. In integrating and shortening the technical material and eliminating simpler material covering normal ranges and typical blood counts, the author brings a stronger clinical emphasis to the book, provides a 20% increase in the text, and offers 5-10% more pictures.

Professor Bain's research interests are ethnic and other biological differences in haematological variables and cytogenetics in relation to haematological malignancy. She has a major interest in teaching, both undergraduate and postgraduate, as well as in the development of teaching resources such as videos, slide sets, websites and CD-ROMs and the development of teaching courses for haematologists, haematology trainees haematopathologists, medical laboratory scientists and cytogeneticists. Amongst other collaborations with experts in the field, she has devised the WHO classification of tumours of the lymphoid haemopoietic systems.Review:
"This book provides a comprehensive guide for the diagnostic clinical haematology laboratory. Much of this material is hard to find elsewhere. The piece de resistance/tour de force of this clearly written book is morphology, the forgotten art of haematology.
The reader will find many pearls of wisdom scattered throughout the text. These nuances and practical tips are not usually in standard textbooks but are passed on from master to student in the course of patient care by doing, not reading.
Dr Bain's measure of success for her book was to send 'the reader back to the microscope with renewed interest and enthusiasm'. With this third edition of a gem of a text, she has succeeded brilliantly. This book will find a useful place on the bookshelf right above the haematologist's trusty microscope."
British Journal of Haematology
"should be considered an essential part of every haematology library. It is relevant to the needs of both scientific and clinical haematologists and many workers may wish to own their own copy."
British Journal of Biomedical Science
"With some 300 high quality colour plates, this book contains all that is required to aid the identification of the most common, to the most obscure, blood cell features that a haematology laboratory is likely to encounter... It is highly recommended."
