This succinct book guides the trainee through the hurdles of fledgling cytology practice and can also be used throughout the career as an aide memoire by the more experienced. Whilst there are several well established and excellent textbooks on general cytology, these are by and large reference books rather than bench books that can lie beside each individual trainee's microscope and be resourced continually before and during each case. With numerous illustrations to enthuse the reader and make cytological practice a more enjoyable and educational experience, the book also highlights points of
