5 STAR DOODY'S REVIEW!

"This edition continues the tradition of providing a comprehensive, updated textbook of hematology. This very worthy objective is spectacularly met by this edition. As a textbook of hematology, this has a broad-based audience — medical students, residents, fellows, and practitioners (including our allied health

partners) in virtually every aspect of medicine. The authors and editors are internationally recognized — in fact, luminaries, in their fields....Williams continues to sustain its unparalleled reputation as THE textbook of hematology. I've run out of superlatives. Get it."—Doody's Review Service

Edition after edition, Williams Hematology has guided generations of clinicians, biomedical researchers, and trainees in many disciplines through the origins, pathophysiological mechanisms, and management of benign and malignant disorders of blood cells and coagulation proteins. The book begins with the evaluation of the patient and progresses to the molecular and cellular underpinnings of normal and pathological hematology. Subsequent sections present disorders of the erythrocyte, granulocytes and monocytes, lymphocytes and plasma cells, malignant myeloid and lymphoid diseases, hemostasis and thrombosis, and transfusion medicine.

Featuring a brand-new full-color presentation, the Eighth Edition of Williams Hematology is extensively revised to reflect the latest views of experts in the field. Two new chapters examine the importance of genomics in hematology and cell therapy for tissue replacement, whereas other chapters have been revised to incorporate the newest clinical approaches to the leukemias and lymphomas, and the application of targeted therapy in the treatment of hematologic disorders.

New to this Edition:

  • Full-color presentation conveniently integrates images of blood and tissue findings where they are cited in the text
  • Two additional chapters, “Genomics and Epigenetics,” and “Regenerative Medicine: Principles of Multipotential Cell Therapy for Tissue Replacement,” offer insights into the application of genomic and monoclonal therapies to hematology and emphasize their role in improving diagnostic and therapeutic methods
  • Expanded coverage of non-Hodgkin lymphoma includes separate chapters on its constituent diseases, providing an in-depth assessment of the diagnosis and management of these disorders
  • A comprehensive discussion of erythrocytosis and thrombocytosis reviews reactive and malignant forms of myeloproliferation, encompassing new genetic advances in these disorders along with more targeted therapeutic approaches
  • Companion CD includes a large selection of morphologies, illustrations, and drawings from the book, in a presentation-ready PowerPoint format

From The Critics

Reviewer: Valerie L. Ng, PhD MD(Alameda County Medical Center/Highland Hospital)
Description: This is the eighth edition of this comprehensive textbook of hematology. The previous edition was published in 2005.
Purpose: This edition continues the tradition of providing a comprehensive, updated textbook of hematology. This very worthy objective is spectacularly met by this edition.
Audience: As a textbook of hematology, this has a broad-based audience — medical students, residents, fellows, and practitioners (including our allied health partners) in virtually every aspect of medicine. The authors and editors are internationally recognized — in fact, luminaries — in their fields.
Features: There is a reason Williams has been the go-to textbook of hematology for generations. It is comprehensive, it has the answer to any question regarding hematology, it has the depth of detail to explain and justify the answers, and it contains a wealth of basic science and translational pathophysiology for optimal, lifelong learning. The continued exponential growth of research into the molecular mechanisms responsible for hematological disorders and the impact on diagnosis and treatment is extraordinarily well captured in this edition. There are 141 chapters in 2400 pages (yes, it is heavy). To impart a sense of the comprehensiveness of this book, the first chapter discusses the physical exam (very basic), whereas the single chapter on thrombocytosis in the previous edition has now been split into two chapters: reactive versus myeloproliferative (esoteric). New to this edition are chapters on epigenetics and genomics, and regenerative medicine. Not only does this edition contain all you could ever want to know about hematology, it has new features to take advantage of contemporary technology (iPhone/mobile apps) and connectedness (online version has hyperlinks to cited references, drug databases, Goodman & Gilman's The Pharmacological Basis of Therapeutics, 12th edition, Brunton et al. (McGraw-Hill, 2011), Harrison's Principles of Internal Medicine, 18th edition, Longo et al. (McGraw-Hill, 2011)). This edition also comes with a CD-ROM containing images (photomicrographs, illustrations, drawings) ready to snap into PowerPoint presentations. Very, very, very minor criticisms: some of the photomicrographs do not have color faithful reproduction (e.g., blue or yellow backgrounds), and the book is heavy. This latter issue can be completely obviated by using the online version, likely on your smartphone or tablet.
Assessment: Williams continues to sustain its unparalleled reputation as THE textbook of hematology. I've run out of superlatives. Get it.
