The appearance of the second edition of this excellent book one year after the first attests its popularity. There are fourteen additional pages, and more than twelve illustrations have been added. The material is presented in terms of the physiology of blood and its pathologic variation. Morphology, although emphasized, is used to describe processes and mechanisms rather than names of structures. Haden feels that "the average physician should not attempt to interpret conditions which puzzle even an experienced student of the blood" and so has omitted the technic of supravital staining and biopsy and puncture of the bone marrow. The details of technical methods of blood examination are well presented, and new and helpful features have been added. The clinical features of the diseases are brought out as the "mechanism" of the disease, and the classic features are elaborated in the case reports. Therapy is treated in the same way.
