Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This is an excellent book that should be used by everyone starting to learn histology. It is superbly simple and colourful with informative diagrams that are clearly labelled! This book makes histology enjoyable: much better than staring for hours on end down a microscope and not knowing what you are looking at! I like the way it divides the sections into the different body systems. The index is very useful. High-quality illustrations are provided in this book and the printing quality is excellent. I will happily recommend it to all science and medical students!" - BMA Awards 2007, review of the previous edition
