About the Author
Victor P. Eroschenko completed both his undergraduate and graduate degrees at the University of California at Davis. He received his Bachelor of Arts degree in Zoology in 1961. Following graduation, he enlisted in the U.S. Army and spent the next three years in Germany. Eroschenko returned to the university in 1968 and received a Master of Science in Anatomy in 1970. In 1973, he was awarded the Ph.D. degree in Anatomy. That same summer, he accepted a faculty position at the University of Idaho in Moscow, Idaho to teach anatomical sciences to both medical students and undergraduate students. Since 1973, Eroschenko has been team-teaching Human Gross Anatomy and Medical Histology to freshman medical students in the WAMI Medical Program. He also teaches a one-semester course in Human Anatomy and Physiology to University of Idaho undergraduate students that major in Allied Health Sciences.
Eroschenko's research interests lie in the area of Reproductive Toxicology. During his academic career, he has authored or co-authored over 40 scientific papers that were published in refereed national and international journals. He is also the author of the Laboratory Manual for Human Anatomy for use with Models and Prosected Cadavers, Second Edition. He was also the editor of the 6th edition of DiFiore's Atlas of Normal Histology, and is presently the author of the Seventh and Eighth Editions of DiFiore's Atlas of Histology with Functional Correlations. Eroschenko has just completed an interactive CD-ROM disk on Human Histology, which should be published in the near future.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
The strengths of DiFore's Atlas are that it is a good blent between an atlas and a text. There are a good number of pictures as well as very concise text. The clinical correlations are a very good addition, but seems to be less and less a distinguishing factor as there has been a great shift to a clinical emphasis in the sciences.
The majority of the images in this atlas are artistic renditions (i.e. drawing) of histological sections. Therefore, you are getting the most ideal situations.
But there's the rub. The main problem with this atlas is that it predominantly drawings and not real histological samples. It would have been much better if it were around 1:1 or 1:3 drawings to images. You do not get to train yourself to identify what is background "noise" and what are actual important landmarks and cells.
I would not recommend buying this text unless you are trying to learn histology on your own outside of class.
Other people in my medical school class used the wheater book, gartner, or strete and seemed happy. There were a few instances where I would have preferred to see a photograph instead of a drawing, but overall I was very happy with this book and would use it again. This book was particularly helpful in the "lab" portion of histology when identifying cells and tissue structures on slides.
