"This is an excellent study guide for medical, dental, or other health science students. The ninth edition includes numerous color diagrams, gross photographs, diagnostic images, and a small but captivating set of three-dimensional animations, which help make a difficult topic easier to understand."- Harris Goodman, MD (Saint Francis Memorial Hospital) 4 star Doody rating!

I especially liked the clinical questions at the end of each chapter, these engage you and really encourage and force you to think about the clinical problem and how best to handle it. This reinforces the knowledge, aiding recall at a later date when you may be in such a situation on the ward. This strong clinical grounding succeeds in making embryology interesting and even enjoyable!
The ability to download the illustrations via student consult is particularly useful when making presentations for teaching.
The only negative I could find was the use of American terminology and some differences between practises in the US and here in the UK. However I found these few and far between and if anything they reinforced my knowledge of the differences in UK practise.
Overall a great book that will be useful for those at both undergraduate and post graduate level. The only reason it misses out on a 5 is due to the American focus.
If you find yourself asking any of these questions then this book could be worth a read. The first 6 chapters give you a detailed overview of embryological development from conception to birth. The diagrams that are used are detailed, logical and on the whole easy to follow. Usefully at the end of each chapter there are clinically oriented problems often in the form of several patient cases with questions that help you to apply the knowledge from the chapter. There are useful boxes in this book that link to obstetric conditions and investigations and how they relate to the stage or system being currently described. At the end of the book there is also a potentially interesting chapter that using the knowledge built on from the book goes through birth defects from; genetic, environmental and multifactorial inheritance.
In addition to the book you get online access with some specific online features of animations. These animations are very detailed and clearly demonstrate the concept they are covering be it fertilisation, folding of the embryo, development of the facial region or the vascular system. The only slightly negative comment about them is that they would have been good to have had voice over's to them.
As mentioned by another reviewer on amazon is that this book is written by Canadian authors so in a few places the terminology used in some cases is American with slight differences to what we need to know in the UK.Read more ›
