5 Star - Doody's Rating, March 2013
"There has been a significant improvement in general layout?and visual appearence between the 5th and 6th editions. The book is now in full colour throughout, with numerous sections of added and useful information contained in blue and red coloured boxes...The entire text of the book, including downloadable images, is available online, and includes updates to the book - such as the recent addition of arsenic trioxide and ATRA as treatment for acute promyelocytic leukaemia...for the truly discerning haematologist, only th fullest detail will suffice, and only Hoffman's Hematology: Basic Principles and Practice will do."
