Larry R. Cochard
This new softcover book on embryology is aptly named. It covers normal human development and clinical embryology, with emphasis throughout on relevant molecular and experimental studies. The purpose is to introduce the structural changes in the embryo and fetus in the context of the rapid and revolutionary scientific developments in the field. The stated goal is to do this in a manner that is understandable to the beginning student and streamlined enough for the reduced emphasis on embryology in medical curricula. The book is intended for first-year medical and allied health students. The excellent coverage of clinical topics such as congenital defects, treatment of infertility, prenatal imaging, and the genetic manipulation of embryos will make this appealing to medical students. The detailed coverage of the cellular and molecular basis of development, however, points to a different audience, perhaps graduate students, advanced medical students, or more specialized health professionals. The chapters in the first half of the book emphasize early development, the body plan, mother and fetus, molecular and cellular concepts, and related clinical topics. The second half covers the body systems. The book's unique feature is its focus on the biology of development. No other book in its class has its detail at the molecular and genetic level and its scope. It includes some histology and cell biology, and the descriptive figures on the body systems tend to emphasize more realistic changes in structures instead of schematics. The author does an admirable job on the science of development and the current state of medical embryology, but the detail works against the beginner, at least for a shortembryology course. Although the book may not stand alone for any particular course, it would be an excellent reference for advanced students in a variety of areas in biology and medicine. There is much of value in this unique book.
