Review:

"Platelets fills an important niche on the bookshelf of any academic hematologist. The user-friendly online access to the figures contained in the textbook will be especially useful for teaching purposes...this encyclopedia of the platelet contains critical information for physicians, educators, students, and research scientists."--HematologyTimes.com, January 29, 2014

Reviews of the Third Edition:

"Comprehensive and definitive, this third-edition reference integrates platelet biology, pathophysiology, and clinical medicine. Sixty-four chapters address biology, function, disease, disorders of platelet number or function, antiplatelet therapy, and therapy to increase numbers and/or function."--Reference and Research Book News, August 2013

"I've been reading various chapters for the past few days and have been marveling at the sheer depth and breadth. No other textbook or other reference source is comparable...You must have this book if your practice or interest even superficially touches on platelets."--Doody.com, June 21, 2013

"Platelets is the definitive current source of state- of-the-art knowledge about platelets and covers the entire field of platelet biology, pathophysiology, and clinical medicine."--Doody.com, April 24, 2013

"One might well question the value of a doorstopper-sized textbook in this era of instant Internet access to all variety of even the most arcane information. A notable exception, however, is the third edition of Michelson’s Platelets. The surprising complexity of these anucleate cells and their diverse and ever enlarging roles in physiology and disease has attracted a large cadre of interdisciplinary researchers focused on various aspects of these roles. Having at ready hand a readable, authoritative, comprehensive and beautifully illustrated and cross-referenced volume makes for easy access to important information required by these researchers – both established senior investigators and their students."--Thomas P Stossel, MD, American Cancer Society Professor of Medicine Harvard Medical School Director, Translational Medicine Unit and center for Medical Innovation Senior Physician, Hematology Division Brigham & Women's Hospital, Boston, MA, USA

Reviews of the SECOND EDITION "...the book is a clearly written, concise, and comprehensive discussion of platelets and their disorders that will be useful to anyone whose professional activity involves these important little cells." -Journal of the American Medical Association "This is a fantastic resource for anyone who treats patients with platelets disorders or is engaged in platelet or megakaryocyte-based research." - BRITISH JOURNAL OF HAEMATOLOGY

"This is the second edition of a comprehensive book on everything you could ever possibly want to know about platelets...The purpose is to provide a comprehensive, definitive, and authoritative book on platelets. These are worthy objectives, well met in this updated edition...This book would interest anyone wanting to learn about platelets: physicians at all stages of training or practice, clinical laboratory scientists at any stage of training or practice, and basic scientists interested in learning about clinical aspects of platelets...This is the book I'll use whenever I have to answer any type of platelet question. If you field platelet questions, you should get this book, too." - Valerie L. Ng, PhD, MD, Alameda County Medical Center/Highland Hospital, FOR DOODY'S (4 Stars)

Reviews of the FIRST EDITION "landmark...a useful, comprehensive reference" - New England Journal of Medicine (2003) "belongs on the bookshelf of every clinician who assesses patients with platelet disorders" - The Lancet (2003) "arguably the most complete compendium available on the subject that was once regarded as merely 'blood dust'." - British Journal of Haematology (2003) "a single-handed compilation of authoritative material" - Transfusion (2003) "a modern encyclopedia...stands out as the most comprehensive and up-to-date review of platelets yet published." - Journal of Vascular Surgery (2003)

"beautifully organized" - American Journal of Clinical Pathology (2003)

"...a must have for the shelf of physicians and scientists with more than a passing interest in platelet pathophysiology." -LABORATORY HEMATOLOGY (2003)

"...most up-to-date comprehensive standard work, which provides a superb reference for everyone interested in platelets." -PATHOPHYSIOLOGY OF HAEMOSTASIS AND THROMBOSIS (November 2003)

"If you have no time to waste then Platelets is the book for you." -ARCH PATHOL LAB MED (November 2003)

"...comprehensive compendium that is one of the first to appear on this important subject in more than a decade..." -INTERNATIONAL SOCIETY ON THROMBOSIS AND HAEMOSTASIS (2003)

"A hefty, comprehensive reference comprising 61 contributed chapters on those small cells with big roles." -SCITECH BOOK NEWS (December 2002)

"Without a doubt, the text will serve as a definitive resource for years to come." -DEPARTMENT OF LABRATORY MEDICINE AND PATHOLOGY, AND PEDIATRICS (2003)

"The material is of self sufficient quality and scope that many chapters will retain their value for years to come." -SEATTLE VETERANS HOSPITAL (2003)
