The accelerated pace of recent advances in this area of medicine, so critical to improving patient care, prompts the timely publication of the fifth edition of Hemostasis and Thrombosis. Remarkably, the first edition (1982) was less than 100 pages shorter yet contained 81 chapters, compared with 123 in the new edition. The editors have efficiently organized the content, which is presented in a comprehensive and concise manner. The contributors are among the foremost authorities in their fields.
