It is a dictionary of haematology... and so they may still swap the identify to incorporate the notice "Dictionary". I nearly did not purchase it simply because i could not determine if it used to be a dictionary or not.
Apparently Barbara Bain is the guru of haematology. it really is remarkable she placed out a ebook with so few photo's. how will you have a booklet on haematology with out virtually any images? Haematology is all approximately visible interpretations of cells! Barbara should have plenty of stable photo's which may be used to demonstrate the descriptions NB the photographs should be in colour...as the few that do exist are in B&W.
There is a special scarcity of dictionaries of haematology (I could not locate one)... so this ebook fills an visible desire.
I'm now into my 3rd ebook on haematology... with no solid definition of the various phrases. $$$ ouch!!!
The medical haematology atlas by way of Carr nearly fills this area of interest: it has plenty of photos yet does not clarify loads of terms.
What this e-book wishes is extra images, a bit extra awareness to spelling (some typo's), a number of extra definitions (there are a couple of visible ones lacking) and a section extra element: My haematology teachers laughed at many of the definitions.
The publishers (Blackwell) and Barbara supplied no touch info wherein any feedback might be made. A secretary from Blackwell finally spoke back to an e-mail... yet appeared bemused consumer would wish to signify advancements to a booklet. They do not have again to me approximately this. that is surprising... as so much publishers welcome consumer feedback... because it simplifies the method after they do the update.
Honestly it'd be particularly effortless to make a brand new variation of this ebook a lot better... and that i would not brain paying a piece extra for a few great photo's... in particular in the event that they have been in colour.
Overally... it really is really fairly an invaluable reference for a person in need of a brief heads up in haematology... yet i believe nearly the other corporation may do a greater job... yet no one has. Pity.
P.S. very first thing you have to do whilst learning a brand new sector is purchase a dictionary!
