Editorial Reviews


Doody's Rating: * * * * First impression -- this book is absolutely beautiful. It is replete with color photomicrographs and the color reproduction is excellent and faithful. It is a delight simply to look at the pictures. Once past this initial impression, the factual excellence of this book emerges..This book is going right next to my microscope. I will carry it with me for reference whenever I want my Wright-Giemsa stained preparation evaluated by my partner who has the Pap stain counterpart. It's a great book.
Weighted Numerical Score: 92"In conclusion, this is a beautiful text filled not only with excellent illustrations of effusion cytology, but also with a broad range of experience that these authors have working with these specimens." - Advances in Anatomic Pathology, 2008
