"Given the unprecedented and rapid changes in our understanding of the biology and treatment approaches for the various leukemias, this book is a welcome addition to the shelves of anyone interested keeping current in the field of leukemia or involved in the treatment of such patients. This book is particularly easy to read and each topic is entirely covered in one or two chapters. An eighth edition will be required, eagerly anticipated, and enthusiastically welcomed."
