As the title suggests this book fills a void that has existed between the theory of what is learnt at university and what you actually get 'to do' when you are qualified and working in a histo-lab. I have to confess I haven't read all of it yet, but so far the information provided is spot on with regard to what happens in the lab (I work in one!) The layout is appealing too, not too text heavy with nice illustrations together with photgraphs of actual pathology cases. The book uses case studies to explore fundamentals and looks at the basic principles that underpin the practice. Highly recommended for students and those already practicing!
Edit - there are a couple of mistakes that I have picked up, one is regarding the quenching of endogenous peroxidase for IHC methods - it mentions using methanol and hydrogen peroxidase, it should be hydrogen peroxide. The other is a very common error regarding Amyloid and the birefringent effects - there is no such thing as 'Apple-green birefringence' (despite what you've heard!) birefringence is a process and as such does not have colour in itself! See Alexander Howie's good work on Amyloid staining.

I am in the last year of the Applied Biomedical Science degree, and work in the microbiology labs.
I found this book useful with it being a different department to the one I work in. It is from the IBMS, and I would recommend

This book is very updated, full of basic information and friendly designed. I appreciated the diagramming and the high quality microphotographs.
