Published Reviews

    "I am very impressed with this book's content and layout. It is obvious that the authors have spent a great deal of time in designing it. The publishers are also to be commended for the obvious financial investment they have made to produce such a resource. The placement of a table of contents at the beginning of each chapter and the inclusion of some embryology of organ systems are valuable additions. I would rate this book among the top five I have reviewed over the last 15 years and I am comfortable in stating that I know of no other comparative text of the same quality. It has been a pleasure to review this." - Doody's Book Review Service

    "In summary, Netter’s Essential Histology is an excellent textbook with exquisite illustrations and micrographs that provide a broad coverage of histology with clinical correlations. The concise textual material may be an advantage for students and faculty members faced with the continued reduction in time for teaching and learning with the anatomical disciplines in either integrated or traditional discipline-based curricula." -American Association of Anatomists News

    BMA Book Awards 2008 - Highly Commended

    "This revised volume continues a very high standard of structural and function histology, which will benefit both undergraduate and postgraduate students in medicine and those non-medical scientists working human physiology and in animal models of human disease. The very high quality of the illustrations almost allows them to speak for themselves, but the images are supplemented by a lucid and succinct text which conveys basic histological information on both structure and function. The text is supplemented by text boxes which relate to human diseases and dysfunction cells and tissues, with an integrated and problem-based approach that is ideally suited to the current medical curriculum. It is felt in many UK medical schools that insufficient time is devoted to the teaching of histology and physiology; this volume will allow students to bridge this gap and will provide them with a core of information on the composition structure and function of cells and tissues that will stand them in good stead for the rest of their careers. The book is beautifully produced and has an extensive and high quality index, allowing ease of use for both the dedicated student and the interested novice."
