This can be a dictionary of haematology... and so they may still switch the identify to incorporate the notice "Dictionary". I nearly did not purchase it simply because i could not figure out if it was once a dictionary or not.
Apparently Barbara Bain is the guru of haematology. it really is striking she placed out a ebook with so few photo's. how are you going to have a e-book on haematology with no nearly any images? Haematology is all approximately visible interpretations of cells! Barbara should have plenty of sturdy photo's which can be used to demonstrate the descriptions NB the images must be in colour...as the few that do exist are in B&W.
There is a different scarcity of dictionaries of haematology (I could not locate one)... so this booklet fills an noticeable want.
I'm now into my 3rd ebook on haematology... and not using a strong definition of the various phrases. $$$ ouch!!!
The scientific 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 photos, a bit extra realization to spelling (some typo's), a couple of extra definitions (there are a couple of noticeable ones lacking) and a piece extra element: My haematology academics laughed at the various definitions.
The publishers (Blackwell) and Barbara supplied no touch information wherein any feedback may be made. A secretary from Blackwell ultimately spoke back to an e-mail... yet appeared bemused consumer would wish to signify advancements to a e-book. They do not have again to me approximately this. that is surprising... as such a lot publishers welcome consumer feedback... because it simplifies the method once they do the update.
Honestly it'd be relatively effortless to make a brand new variation of this publication a lot better... and that i would not brain paying a section extra for a few great photo's... in particular in the event that they have been in colour.
Overally... it really is truly really an invaluable reference for an individual short of a short heads up in haematology... yet i feel nearly the other corporation may do a greater job... yet no one has. Pity.
P.S. very first thing you have to do while learning a brand new region is purchase a dictionary!
