Review

“An extraordinarily comprehensive textbook covering all aspects of Haematology, brought to life by fantastic use of full colour illustrations, diagrams, and photographs. Since a thorough knowledge of Haematology is the backbone of medical diagnosis, this book is definitely to be recommended to all medical students… and beyond!” Medical Student, Cambridge<!--end-->

“This is an excellent comprehensive yet concise book, which will give you a complete overview of Haematology, a crucial topic for students to master. It has well drawn diagrams, clear explanations, and lots of pictures.” Medical Student, Barts and The London University


“This book is a must for every med student’s book shelf. It’s a perfect book containing everything you need to or will be expected to know while in medical school and as a junior doctor. Explanations are clear and easy to understand, diagrams are colourful, and the pictures make the clinical scenario/patient come to life before your eyes." Medical Student, University College, Dublin



“I’ve always had problems with understanding haematological malignancies and this book has proven very useful in this regard. It’s a useful reference which can go a long way to addressing the gap between what is taught and what is expected! Whether you’re a medical student or junior doctor, this is a great book.” Medical Student, GKT

“Essential Haematology is an excellent core text. Filled with coloured diagrams, radiographs, and clinical pictures, the text is beautifully illustrated throughout. The book is laid out in an easy to understand way and is comprehensively and concisely written covering the basic medical sciences of haematological disorders, clinical features, diagnostic tests, and management of various conditions.” Medical Student, University of Manchester

"If you are looking to buy a haematology book then I would definitely go for this one based on how comprehensive it is." GKT Gazette

“Comprehensive look at the biochemical, physiological and immunological processes … .Designed to help medical students grasp the essential features of modern clinical and laboratory hematology.”
National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases

From the Back Cover

Essential Haematology is established as the most authoritative introduction to the subject for bioscience and medical students, junior doctors, laboratory scientists and nurses. 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 and clinical features and management are all easily explained.

The 5th edition has been reorganized to increase the focus on discrete disorders to show the increased understanding of the causation of blood disorders and improved diagnostic techniques and clinical management. A new standardized approach to describing disease and management has also been introduced. The authors' engaging style and inviting presentation continue to make Essential Haematology the perfect learning and reference text.

I loved this book. 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.

Format: Paperback
If you are already familiar with hematology and simply need a quick refresher, this is the book for you. However, as a medical student learning some of this material for the first time, I found this book to be lacking the detail and explanations necessary to establish a solid understanding of the subject. There are a couple nice figures, but overall I recommend sticking with a text like Robbins.

Hematology is one of the grab bag subjects at the Medical School I attend. A little is taught in Respiratory, a little in Renal, a little in Skin, bone and joint. This book is a great read with many high quality images. The pages are of a high quality glossy paper.

A British slant does predominate the book as the title Haematoology (instead of the States Hematology) implies. Discussions of treatment of certain disorders might deviate from accepted practice in the States, but the pathophysiology is covered in great detail and is universal knowledge. I will be keeping this book in my library since it is more than just one of those junk USMLE review books that show keywords and high yield pictures.

I've been using this book for the heme block during my second year of med school and I'm loving it! It's very concise with good pictures - especially some good clinical pics so you know how to recognize the different brusing patterns. The chapters are very short and to the point. Each disease has a section with a bulleted list of clinical features and lab findings. Great for the busy med student but it may not be enough for an actualy hematologist.

I used this for our Haematology course in 2nd year medical school. It is an excellent text, easy reading, concise. For anyone needing just the basics in Haem, this is a great choice.
