"well written in a clear language and with obvious sympathy for our patients; [...] is very well informed and admirably up to date in providing information about basic and applied research as well as new trials in hematology; finally, it has a useful glossary and deatailed info and (working!) www address for support societies in a number of countries. In short, a thoroughly researched contribution to the bookshelf." Peter Hokland, Euorpean Journal of Haematology, August 2006, Vol 77. Iss 2.
