As a medical student, I found this book indispensable when it came to studying embryology. Perfect in many aspects - it is concise, accurate, reliable, and the text is coupled with truly beautiful diagrams, pictures, photographs, and other visual aids. I cannot fault this book in any way or form. It is truly the holy grail for any medical student studying embryology, or indeed for any student of this scientific field.
It's strongest points are as follows: - The wording is very nice; clear sentences, easy to follow, easy to comprehend - Concise. You won't get burdened with an overload of information, safe to say. - Logical progression through each chapter. - Very nicely broken up into sections. - The later chapters are dedicated to systems-based embryology, whereas the first sections of the book give you an overview of general embryological development and processes and builds up the basis/foundation required for understanding this complex biological science.
An easy to read, concise text explaining how the individual components, systems, functions and the human body itself are constructed. Would be suitable for a range of readers, from medical students to senior trainee's to consultants wanting to quickly brush-up on the subject.
It is an excellent book for those who want to study embriology in a simple and concise way. The information you get through this book is great to know and understand the basics and clinical signs of embriology. Illustrated with wonderful diagrams and pictures. Buy it!
