Dr. Fowler's book on hematology has the virtue of being comprehensive and adequate without being too highly specialized. Hematology has become more complex than ever in the past few years. New syndromes have been described, and new discussions on the classification of cells are afoot. The vogue for bone marrow puncture has added to the complexity of interpretation. Sometimes one feels, in reading the report of a "hematologist," that the author is bogged down in a mass of verbiage and that what he has to say may be of little help to the physician with a patient. Such "superspecialization" is avoided in this treatise, although what the ordinary physician needs to know is thoroughly discussed.

The book is handsomely printed on fine paper, and the illustrations are excellent.
