Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: George K. Niiro, PhD (Midwestern University)
Description: This book on human microscopic anatomy as it relates to function uses clinical correlations to help readers understand the mechanisms of disease. The first edition was published in 2008.
Purpose: The aim is to provide a visual guide to histology for all healthcare professionals, whether they are new to the subject or reviewing the material for licensing exams. The understanding and recognition of histological information is a key requirement for success in clinical fields such as pathology. The book moves from normal microscopic anatomy to its importance in understanding abnormal and disease states.
Audience: It is intended for all health practitioners in medicine, dentistry, and allied health, as well as undergraduate science students. The authors also direct the book at medical technologists, teachers, researchers, and residents.
Features: The book covers all of basic human microscopic anatomy from the cell through tissues and organ systems. Netter drawings and microscopic images are liberally used throughout. "Clinical points" provide the link to diseases. Purchasers of the book also have access to online resources such as videos, digitized light microscopic slides, and zoomable electron microscopic images.
Assessment: This book uses a unique "plate" format where the text acts as an expanded legend to the accompanying illustrations. The information is delivered in small, reader-friendly chunks. Unlike other established books in histology, the text and images are always on the same page. Because of the generous use of Frank Netter illustrations, the book is successful in bridging the gap between gross anatomy and microscopic anatomy.
