This can be a dictionary of haematology... they usually may still switch the identify to incorporate the note "Dictionary". I virtually did not purchase it simply because i could not determine if it was once a dictionary or not.
Apparently Barbara Bain is the guru of haematology. it is staggering she placed out a booklet with so few photo's. how will you have a e-book on haematology with out virtually any photos? Haematology is all approximately visible interpretations of cells! Barbara should have plenty of solid photo's that may be used to demonstrate the descriptions NB the photographs should be in colour...as the few that do exist are in B&W.
There is a unique scarcity of dictionaries of haematology (I could not locate one)... so this e-book fills an noticeable want.
I'm now into my 3rd publication on haematology... and not using a reliable definition of a number of the phrases. $$$ ouch!!!
The medical haematology atlas by way of Carr nearly fills this area of interest: it has plenty of photographs yet does not clarify loads of terms.
What this publication wishes is extra photographs, a bit extra recognition to spelling (some typo's), a couple of extra definitions (there are a number of noticeable ones lacking) and a section extra aspect: My haematology teachers laughed at some of the definitions.
The publishers (Blackwell) and Barbara supplied no touch info wherein any feedback will be made. A secretary from Blackwell finally spoke back to an e-mail... yet appeared bemused consumer would need to signify advancements to a publication. They do not have again to me approximately this. that is surprising... as such a lot publishers welcome person feedback... because it simplifies the method once they do the update.
Honestly it might be relatively effortless to make a brand new variation of this e-book a lot better... and that i would not brain paying a section extra for a few great photo's... specially in the event that they have been in colour.
Overally... it is truly particularly an invaluable reference for somebody short of a brief heads up in haematology... yet i believe nearly the other corporation might do a greater job... yet not anyone has. Pity.
P.S. very first thing you have to do while learning a brand new sector is purchase a dictionary!

The upper figure shows the two normal and two abnormal chromosomes with their characteristic banding patterns. The short arm (p), long arm (q), centromere, telomeres and the two chromatids that make up a chromosome are also indicated. In the lower diagram chromosome 15 and material derived from it is shown in black and chromosome 17 and material derived from it in white.
