"Covers all of basic human microscopic anatomy from the cell through tissues and organ systems. Because of the generous use of Frank Netter illustrations, the book is successful in bridging the gap between gross anatomy and microscopic anatomy. Since it is also an atlas, 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. 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, this one includes the text and images on the same page." George K. Niiro, PhD (Midwestern University), Excerpts from Doody’s review service, Rating - 4 Stars!
