Nine dollars is too much money for this small monograph.

As I read through it I tried to imagine what use physicians and allied professionals might make of this book. Despite the optimism of the foreword, the information presented appears to offer little of educational or practical value to physicians involved in the study and care of patients with hemorrhagic disorders.

It is chiefly a compendium of socioeconomic statistics (I'm not sure how they were collected) about hemophiliacs, sprinkled with sociological jargon and unproved psychological assumptions. I do not recommend this book to clinicians or researchers, nor to anyone else.
