Quotes and reviews
"I would like to applaud Professor Philip Lanzkowsky and his colleagues for the publication of the sixth edition of Lanzkowsky’s Manual of Pediatric Hematology and Oncology. As with the previous editions, the manual is a most practical tool for students, residents, and physicians in the field of hematology and oncology. It should automatically be on the list of required study for trainees and on the shelf on practicing clinicians. It provides valuable diagnostic algorithms, including state of the art diagnostic approaches and up-to-date therapeutic regimens, which influence decisions for management at the bedside. Dr. Lanzkowsky’s didactic approach, the product of over five decades of academic clinical practice, permeates the book, which is distinguished by its clarity and clinical relevance."

"The Lanzkowsky Manual was the first manual I consulted when I was a resident interested in pediatric hematology and oncology; I loved its comprehensive and yet clear approach to so many topics. The manual has kept its unique place on my shelf over the years and the many editions since it was first published. I continue to consult it often for its practical guidance, and it remains a book of reference for me."

"The sixth edition of the Manual of Pediatric Hematology and Oncology has now been retitled Lanzkowsky’s Manual of Pediatric Hematology and Oncology in recognition of the contribution of the original editor and guiding author for over 35 years. Like all the previous editions, this edition is a highly valuable resource providing the most up-to-date information in an accessible form focusing on practical clinical information. It is a "must consult" book for all clinicians in the field. The new chapters on transfusion medicine and diagnostic, molecular, and genomic methodologies are excellent additions reflecting recent progress in these areas. This edition has been enhanced by 51 highly regarded contributing authors who are leaders in their respective fields."

"I have been using Lanzkowsky’s Manual of Pediatric Hematology Oncology since it was first published in 1980. The Manual is a very valuable ready reference, written in a didactic way, filled with excellent algorithms and up-to-date treatment regimens, which are extremely useful to the clinician. I highly recommend it to all students and practitioners of pediatric hematology and oncology as an essential reference book."
