Venous thromboembolism is such an important and frequent clinical problem that any new book on the subject is worthy of review. The editor's statement of purpose in the preface—"to assist all who participate in the clinical care and investigation of venous thromboembolic disorders"—aroused my interest, considering the book contains only 286 pages, not including the index. In short, Dr. Goldhaber and his contributors come remarkably close to fulfilling such an ambitious undertaking.
The organization into four parts—fundamentals, clinical considerations, special clinical topics, and future prospects—is unique and permits a reader with a limited or special interest to focus on it.
