Editorial Reviews

Michael F. Dauzvardis
This second edition (first edition 1993) of this book, which focuses on the intricacies of human development, somehow manages to improve on an already established and revered embryology primer. The book uses a modular design fashioned to assist students and instructors in tailoring the book to their specific needs. The book was written to meet the needs of first-year medical students, not only enlightening them to the field of embryology but also sparking their fascination with the topic. The book more than meets these objectives. In addition to first-year medical students, this book was written for residents, neonatologists, premedical undergraduates, graduate students of developmental biology, nursing students, and allied health students in disciplines such as the growing field of genetic counseling. Dr. Larsen is certainly familiar with his subject matter. The book is replete with color plates, line drawings, tables, graphs, and superior quality scanning electron micrographs. References are current and pertinent. Embryology is a dynamic subject, and the cumulative effect of the more than 1000 illustrations is to make the book perform like a video, capturing the evolution of zygote to newborn. This new edition has succeeded in updating the reader on many of the latest advances in molecular biology and gene regulation. In addition, the inclusion of many new color photos and scanning electron micrographs has made for lively reading, but most exciting is the development of a web site, which contains many interactive testing exercises and animations. All students and instructors of embryology should consider owning this second edition.

This attractive book on embryology integrates the science, the medicine, and the description of developmental events. With excellent figures and photographs, it is designed introduce embryology to medical students and to stimulate their interest with separate sections on the latest scientific developments in the field and the relevance to clinical practice. The book is intended for first-year medical students, but the comprehensive coverage makes it useful for advanced medical students and residents. The level of detail may frustrate students with little biological background, but the basics are there and the modular format makes it easy to use. Each chapter begins with a summary and a one-page timetable with graphics of the major events. The primary descriptive section is followed by clinical applications and experimental principles, and any section can stand alone. The chapter topic headings are boldface sentences that, with the figures, allow a student to quickly survey the important points. This paperback book has a reasonable price. It is well edited, referenced, and indexed and has good use of color in the figures. Besides the admirable de sign of the book, a unique and appealing feature is the coverage of the biological basis of development, including comparative embryology and the genetic and molecular explanations for phenomena. This book is a welcome and timely addition to a trend in medical education that places increasing emphasis on the integration of basic science and clinical medicine. Its scope may be a little broad for the beginner, but its format and quality make it useful for all students of embryology.
