I’ve been in the Clinical diagnostic laboratory business for a long, long time. Each year, thousands of patients are screened for hepatitis. In this well written book, the author concisely explains it all in a format unlike any other I have seen. I’m going to recommend it to those who are interested in a basic overview of Hepatitis. It also serves as a valuable resource for practicing Laboratorians, Pathologists, Residents, Fellows and to Health care practitioners researching the advanced clinical aspects of Hepatitis.
