Abstract

The fifth edition of this familiar laboratory and clinical reference book is a handsomely bound volume which maintains the format used in the preceding volumes. It is divided into twenty chapters and an appendix, each chapter being listed in outline form for rapid location of those procedures which one may wish to refer to at a moment's notice. The authors have done an admirable job of incorporating worthwhile advances in the field of laboratory diagnosis into this volume while at the same time omitting procedures which are not as yet of proved value or which offer little advantage over well-established methods. One particularly laudable feature of this new volume is the incorporation of pediatric hematologic techniques under the general topic of hematology, thus reuniting the fields of pediatrics and medicine.

The authors have achieved excellence in the preparation and execution of this laboratory book. It will serve students and practitioners
