Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Harris S Goodman, MD (Saint Francis Memorial Hospital)
Description: This book provides an overview of the different types of human tissues as well as a discussion of human systems from a histological point of view.
Purpose: The goal is to cover human histology in a concise yet complete manner, with brief text, clear illustrations, and photomicrographs.
Audience: The book is designed for first-year medical and dental students studying histology. The authors teach histology at the University of Utah School of Medicine, and clearly understand the needs of such students.
Features: It covers types of tissues in general, as well as specific tissue types and their relevance in a system. The discussions are concise, and the diagrams are well done. Photomicrograph quality is excellent. Exams at the end of each chapter reinforce key concepts.
Assessment: This is a very useful tool for medical or dental students who want to learn basic histology in an efficient and concise manner. Even first-year pathology residents will find this book very useful, although it does not have the detail of advanced histology texts, such as Histology for Pathologists, 4th edition, Mills (Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2012).
