Review of the Third Edition:
“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.”
