Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Joanna Goral, PhD (Midwestern University)
Description: Although small in size, this book in Lippincott's Pocket series for anatomical sciences offers a complete review of histology taught in graduate and professional health science programs.
Purpose: It is designed as a quick review and study guide of histology, presenting essential information and important clinical facts in preparation for course and board exams.
Audience: Students in medicine, dentistry, and other graduate and professional health science programs are the intended audience.
Features: Chapters describe basic tissue types and body systems. Each chapter has a short introduction followed by the presentation of histology in table format. Over 300 color photomicrographs are a part of the tables. Additional concepts, clinical significance, and learning aids such as mnemonics and analogies are also included.
Assessment: Despite the author's intention, the presentation of histology in a table format may not always streamline study and exam preparation. Bulleted text in narrow table columns often obfuscates the information. Labeled photomicrographs are also presented in table columns, with the result that they are very small and cannot provide much information about characteristics of cells or tissues. These same images, in significantly larger sizes, appear in other histology textbooks and are much more informative. In contrast, many figures that appear in "additional concept" sections are much larger, which may not be as important for mastering histology as the quality of photomicrographs. The writing style is sometimes awkward and some of the information is debatable or not completely accurate. In general, however, the presentation of histology is correct and this book can be used as a portable review guide in preparation for course or board exams.
