Abstract

As stated in the preface, the authors intended this book to be used by laboratory workers and students, and they have tried, clearly, concisely and in harmonious style, to explain “how” and “why” for most current tests performed in average general hospital laboratories.

The book is attractively printed in offset style, with two columns of text on a page. There are 688 pages of text, 46 pages of index and 333 black and white illustrations, many of which are photographs.

It is customary for reviewers to praise a good book, taking exception, however, to certain errors or omissions, often in their own field of special interest. This gives evidence that the book has been critically read and tends to make for a balanced review. At the risk of appearing undercritical, this reviewer finds this book to be concise, lucid, current, sound, remarkably free from error, and pleasant to read.
