Book Reviews
"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."-George Niiro, PhD(Midwestern University) Doody Review: 5 stars
