Starting from the premise that there is such a need, Dr. Thompson has proposed to write a book to fill the gap between the insufficiently detailed sections in textbooks of medicine and the encyclopedic textbooks or monographs in hematology. He covers the major subsections of the specialty from the basic aspects of structure, function, formation, and counting of erythrocytes and leukocytes to the more clinical considerations of the various anemias, leukemias, lymphomas, polycythemias, and hemorrhagic diseases.
When writing a book such as this, an author must not only condense, but also omit. One could question Dr. Thompson's choice in either.
