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