REVIEWS – Bone Marrow Pathology
‘…of outstanding quality, this book should secure a place as a benchbook for students and practitioners of haematology and pathology alike’
‘This is certainly the best book so far on this subject. It should appeal to those who do not regularly report marrows, as marrow histology can be very challenging in this setting.’
Australian Journal of Medical Science
‘I wholeheartedly recommend the book to trainees and practising pathologists, whether in haematology or in histopathology, and to a wider medical readership as a clear and informative text.’
Royal College of Pathologists Bulletin.
