Book Description

October 15, 2010 0781772001 978-0781772006 6th

Now in its revised, updated Sixth Edition, Histology: A Text and Atlas is ideal for medical, health professions, and undergraduate biology students. This best-selling combination text and atlas includes a detailed textbook description that emphasizes clinical and functional correlates of histology, fully supplemented by vividly informative illustrations and photographs. Separate, superbly illustrated atlas sections follow almost every chapter and feature large-size, full-color digital micrographs, with labels and legends that highlight details of microanatomy.

For this edition, approximately 20 percent of the micrographs have been replaced with newly enhanced, sharper images. One third of the illustrations have been redrawn in a new style.

A powerful online interactive atlas is included with the book and features all of the plates in the text with interactive functionality.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exceeds expectations! April 15, 2011
By James
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Wow! I bought this book a couple of months ago, but just got around to opening it up last night to study for a histology test. I expected to find a slew of labelled photomicrographs to review, but this book is actually so much more! It is really an anatomy, physiology and histology text all in one - and it is done very very well.

The book is divided into 24 chapters, with chapters by system, tissue type, basic cell biology as well as tissue/slide preparation. Each chapter covers the anatomy and physiology of the system or tissue in question extremely well. The text gets right to the point, but is still very complete in its explanations. Within each paragraph, key words are bolded in red, so you can quickly find the exact topic you are interested in within a subject. All topics are supplemented with fully labelled light and electron photomicrographs of each structure, tissue and cell. Illustrations also accompany a majority of the micrographs to clarify things.

All illustrations and micrographs are thoroughly labelled. Within text pictures are typically 1/4 to 1/2 page in size, and each chapter has its own set of full-page color plates for even better up-close visualization and study. The full-page color photomicrographs at the end of each chapter are fully labelled, but go even further than that with exact descriptions of each label on the opposing page. This is really amazing, because, for instance, on a slide of the kidney that I was studying, not only were the proximal and distal tubules and collecting ducts labelled, there were also accompanying descriptions on the opposing page as to why one was different from another in these very similar looking structures.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but a little too much December 19, 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is dense. As a first year medical student the one thing that you are very limited on is time. This book will definitely have a lot of information that will help you pass your exams, but it also has a lot of information that is better left for PhDs instead of MDs. Don't get me wrong, the more information a doctor has the better, but when you are just trying to pass your first year instead of step1 or beyond then this book can be a little much. I was fortunate to use the last edition before than this edition and I honestly think that the previous edition was a little easier to read because not everything was bold faced and colored like in the new edition. The book kind of went over hill with all the different color fonts and that can get kind of annoying if this is your first read through. However, the nice thing that this version has versus previous editions is that it has more pictures, which is nice if you have never seen a structure and need multiple slides of it. Your university will also likely have a set of online slides, but it is nice to have the ones in the books just to test to see if you can identify the structure in different view or preparation. I wish I could recommend another book that was more concise but this is the only histo book I have had experience with. If you get it, know that there is no way in hell that your prof will be able to cover everything that is in a chapter in just one lecture, so read cautiously and don't think about learning everything that is written because it is very likely that you will get so thinned out by all the information that you will do poorly.

2.0 out of 5 stars Kindle Version: Horrible January 2, 2013
By macuser
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This review is specifically for the *Kindle version.* It is HORRIBLY formatted; there are line breaks where there shouldn't be, no spaces were there should be, paragraph headings look like regular paragraph text, and navigating between a picture being discussed and the text is horrendous, in large part due to lack of links. For some reason, this book is missing features to explain what page of the printed book corresponds to what you are reading, making school-assigned sections rather difficult.

As far as the context itself, it's pretty good. There are a number of things that could be clearer - I usually keep wikipedia in the background to quickly lookup key phrases. Incidentally, the authors know what phrases are important because they are all in bold, but not all of them are defined.

Here is a good example of all of the above problems. (Phrases between *asterisks* are bolded in the text; otherwise the following is formatted exactly how it appears):

The ANS is further subdivided into a *sympathetic division*
and a *parasympathetic division*
. A third division of ANS, the *enteric division*
, serves the alimentary canal.

Besides the problematic formatting, the book doesn't explain what sympathetic and parasympathetic are, despite putting both phrases in bold font to indicate their apparent importance in understanding histology.

3.0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive but not for learning October 20, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I do not recommend this text for learning use. It is comprehensive, as for advanced studies or reference, but poorly written from a learning perspective. It covers every detail while failing to explain major functional points. The illustrations are good but not the best. For learning, use Junqueira's Basic Histology: Text and Atlas, Thirteenth Edition, which actually uses its text to paint a mental picture of what's going on, without unnecessary detail.
