“It is fascinatingly detailed, and makes a wonderful book for browsing, with many interesting facts, often with historical context to each blood group discovery; but its main audience will be those working within the transfusion laboratory, for whom this will be an invaluable reference.”  (Haem Trainee, 1 August 2013)

“Get it. If you are involved in blood banking, this is a must-have.”  (Doody’s, 14 June 2013)
