"The title is recommended without condition to every researcher / laboratory routinely handling erythrocytes, whether probing into their still unresolved secrets or turning them over in a clinical setting."
Thomas Lazar

"This book fulfills the need to review these results, is a comprehensive and up-to-date source of knowledge in the field and is therefore warmly recommended to all scientists engaged in this field."

"Due to its readability, uniformity in style throughout and the avoidance of the patchwork character of most mult-author monographs, "Cell Membrane" is highly recommended to every researcher in a laboratory handling erythrocytes."

"In what can only be called a thorough and successful job, this book summs up this particular field of cell research. ...the following chapter is a very useful summary of the normal, undisturbed red cell membrane. The chapters that follow give a systematic, in depth-discussion of specific components of the erythrocyte membrane. (...) Overall, the book is very organized, treating its subject matter in a most systematic fashion. Due to this, the well-written book has got a clear-cut structure that renders it easy to work with. As a single author-work, the book shows coherence and homogeneity, approaching textbook-like quality. It is readable and uniform in style throughout, avoiding the patchwork character of many multi-author monographs. (...) 'Cell Membrane' can be fully recommended to everyone with an interest in what the book is dealing with: cell membranes. The title is recommended to researchers and laboratories doing investigating red blood cells and those routinely handling erythrocytes. The production quality is very good given the use of high-quality paper, a sturdy binding and a solid hard cover."
