From the reviews:

"This small book contains a wealth of photomicrographs and related information about anything you might ever encounter in cerebrospinal fluids (CSF). … Both students and practitioners involved in CSF examination are the intended audience and there is no doubt this book will be widely embraced by clinical laboratory scientists … and pathologists (especially cytopathologists). However, I think the audience could be much broader than that and include anyone whose clinical practice includes CSF examination -- neurologists, pediatricians, neurosurgeons, infectious disease specialists, clinical hematologists, oncologists, etc." (Valerie L. Ng, Doody’s Review Service, June, 2008)
