4.0 out of 5 stars CONCISE, COMPREHENSIVE, COMPREHENDIBLE September 7, 2000
By A Customer
If you are a layperson with no medical background this book will make the complexities of blood easy for you to understand. A nice feature is the marginal references which makes it easy to find terms used in the chapter under consideration. Students will appreciate the quizzes (with answers) at the end of each chapter that are a help to remembering what was learned. You may not be a hematologist after reading this book, but you will be able to communicate with them. This book is concise, easy to follow, and thorough.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent introduction to blood June 25, 2003
I read the 3rd edition of Dailey's Notes on Blood. The book purports to "offer the layperson and professional a simple way to learn or review the basics of blood physiology, immunology, and related topics." It has done so exceedingly well and the reader is likely to feel that he has gained useful knowledge almost effortlessly. If you are interested to know more about the basics of blood and its components, whether for personal or professional reasons, you are unlikely to find a book that will surpass Dailey's.

4.0 out of 5 stars Concise, good information, see "Note:" December 16, 2010
Good for basic reference, concise, but definitely not a clinical reference as the book is simplified in its explanations and written mostly for the lay person.

Note: --> Marvin Shilmer's review on this book is without credibility and not reliable; Specifically, his statement regarding Jehovah's Witnesses that "Informed readers and researchers know Jehovah's Witness patients sometimes accept allogeneic transfusion of whole blood or its components despite church dogma.(1) Therefore it is misleading for a medical researcher to inform readers that Jehovah's Witness patients do not use allogeneic blood or components" is reprehensible. The fact is this: Jehovah's Witness do not accept blood, those that do are not Jehovah's Witnesses. This is a serious scriptural belief. I would encourage readers to disregard Mr. Shilmer's comments as they are clearly biased and prejudiced.
