The title is admittedly intriguing. The idea of providing the clinician with a laboratory consultant in book form is a needed and useful concept. Unfortunately one is promptly disenchanted. Statements such as: "To obtain marrow specimens for examination, it is necessary to penetrate the surrounding bone" or "The normal stool is soft, molded in the form of a cylinder and measures 2.5 cm. (1 inch) in diameter in adults" are hardly the sort of information needed to make laboratory tests more meaningful.
The editors divide the book into Parts I and II. The laboratory procedures are discussed in Part I.
