Dailey's Notes on Blood by John F. Dailey

Third edition of a reference on hematology for the layperson and the professional. Covers fundamental information about blood, including its elements and their functions. Does not assume any knowledge of biology or chemistry. Includes review questions for each topic and a glossary of terminology. Illustrated.


Very clearly written. Quick short chapters. Good review questions. Not too easy to digest, not to hard. I will be purchasing the more advanced text this book was written to accompany.

This book was written with the medical community in mind, but even as a layman I was able to understand it and make practical application of the information.

Of particular interest to me was the blood conservation methods propounded for persons desiring sterling medical treatment without the use of donor or autologous blood.

Highly recommend this book for anyone looking into the makeup of blood and the design behind its construction.

Best book ever!

Easier to understand book on Blood. Anyone interested should read!

Excellent tool for those who need to deal with the medical community where big unfamiliar words are thrown around. Great tool for understanding the make up and role of blood and its components.

Great scientific info

Good for basic reference, concise, but definitely not a clinical reference as the book is simplified in its explanations and written mostly for the lay person.

Note: --> Marvin Shilmer's review on this book is without credibility and not reliable; Specifically, his statement regarding Jehovah's Witnesses that "Informed readers and researchers know Jehovah's Witness patients sometimes accept allogeneic transfusion of whole blood or its components despite church dogma.(1) Therefore it is misleading for a medical researcher to inform readers that Jehovah's Witness patients do not use allogeneic blood or components" is reprehensible. The fact is this: Jehovah's Witness do not accept blood, those that do are not Jehovah's Witnesses. This is a serious scriptural belief. I would encourage readers to disregard Mr. Shilmer's comments as they are clearly biased and prejudiced.

I read the 3rd edition of Dailey's Notes on Blood. The book purports to "offer the layperson and professional a simple way to learn or review the basics of blood physiology, immunology, and related topics." It has done so exceedingly well and the reader is likely to feel that he has gained useful knowledge almost effortlessly. If you are interested to know more about the basics of blood and its components, whether for personal or professional reasons, you are unlikely to find a book that will surpass Dailey's.
