I used the book to supplement a summer class. The review questions, case studies and appendices were great for understanding the information in each chapter.

This book is pretty good. The authors were renowned in their field. BUT...it is not that well written. Many of the explanations are too vague for a beginner. Example, the difference between Informed Consent and Expressed Consent - they do not make any effort to differentiate.
Also, it was BADLY EDITED, and has a number of errors, as does the workbook, and testbank. Some of the answers to test questions are wrong, and most are written poorly. Sometimes it will tell you 2 different answers to the same question in 2 different parts of the book. Also, the Order of Draw is very outdated, since well before the latest edition updates.
Most of the info is good, but unless you are taking a course from a great instructor who has spent a lot of time in the field, just get something else. My extremely distinguished teacher suggests "Phlebotomy Handbook: Blood Specimen Collection from Basic to Advanced (8th Edition) by Diana Garza and Kathleen Becan-McBride" (Paperback - Mar. 6, 2009)
you can find it here: http://www.amazon.com/Phlebotomy-Handbook-Specimen-Collection-Advanced/dp/0135134242/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1265436502&sr=8-2
I just ordered the handbook, and will review it and compare it to this book within the next month or 2.

This book is fantastic! Covers alot of material with detailed descriptions of how to do stuff and good pictures. Perfect for a reference and study book. Loved it as an addition for my phlebotomy class, it really helped cover what was not explained well and covered more material.

I purchased this book for a relative about to start training. I have over 30 years in the field, having started before there was such a thing as a Phlebotomist. We would go out in the morning for 20+ draws and then some of us would go out again for the patients that were missed (unable to draw). Overfall I think the book is good, it does however go into some areas that phlebotomists do not do. Draw ABG's and collection of CBC's with lambda pipets and isoton. These plus other parts of the book are beneficial in providing knowledge of these processes aref a nice to know thing. I do have issue with the size needles it talks about to use - Any thing less than 21 guage is likely to hemolyze the cells and some of the fancy doodads for neonatal use are interesting - a simple lancet is all you need. Remember using something very small may make you believe you are causing less pain, but that only applies if you have to do it one time. Multiple sticks on a neonates heel or going back to recollet blood because it was hemolyzed is not saving the patient trauma.
