Summary: Overall, the volume starts in a very logical fash-
ion but then descends in a more fractured body of
work where the connection among articles is dif-
ficult to ascertain. Thus, the papers become self-
contained with a lack of continuity not unusual for
a collection of short review articles/brief reports.
However, most of them are interesting and well
written. There are some excellent summaries that
would be of value to both novices in the hemato-
poiesis field as well as hematopoietic stem cell
