Editorial Reviews

Review

"I am very impressed with this book's content and layout. It is obvious that the authors have spent a great deal of time in designing it. The publishers are also to be commended for the obvious financial investment they have made to produce such a resource. The placement of a table of contents at the beginning of each chapter and the inclusion of some embryology of organ systems are valuable additions. I would rate this book among the top five I have reviewed over the last 15 years and I am comfortable in stating that I know of no other comparative text of the same quality. It has been a pleasure to review this." - Doody's Book Review Service

"In summary, Netter’s Essential Histology is an excellent textbook with exquisite illustrations and micrographs that provide a broad coverage of histology with clinical correlations. The concise textual material may be an advantage for students and faculty members faced with the continued reduction in time for teaching and learning with the anatomical disciplines in either integrated or traditional discipline-based curricula." -American Association of Anatomists News

BMA Book Awards 2008 - Highly Commended

"This revised volume continues a very high standard of structural and function histology, which will benefit both undergraduate and postgraduate students in medicine and those non-medical scientists working human physiology and in animal models of human disease. The very high quality of the illustrations almost allows them to speak for themselves, but the images are supplemented by a lucid and succinct text which conveys basic histological information on both structure and function. The text is supplemented by text boxes which relate to human diseases and dysfunction cells and tissues, with an integrated and problem-based approach that is ideally suited to the current medical curriculum. It is felt in many UK medical schools that insufficient time is devoted to the teaching of histology and physiology; this volume will allow students to bridge this gap and will provide them with a core of information on the composition structure and function of cells and tissues that will stand them in good stead for the rest of their careers. The book is beautifully produced and has an extensive and high quality index, allowing ease of use for both the dedicated student and the interested novice."

I have had Netter's copy of Anatomy for decades I believe. It is a beautiful work of art and science. This book is also another contribution using his brilliant work.

It uses the Netter drawings to provided a basis for the structure and then combines this with light microscope and electron microscope slides. The text is all in color and it is of the highest quality.

There is no histopathology in the text and that might have been useful for medical students. The discussions are by the normal sections of cells; blood, bone, muscle and by organ. It is longer than most texts of this type and if you studied histology in the dark ages of poor quality black and white photos this is worth the purchase just to see how things are being taught now.

There are several things I would have like to see such as the use of stains and the preparation of slides but in today's world that has become a technician's task. Yet a great deal can be learned from these techniques.

I had a really bad experience with this book unfortunately, but it did not keep me from see its merits and usefulness. My histology/cell bio class used this as a PRIMARY text, which it is not. Think of this as Netter's Atlas for the cell. The explanations are woefully inadequate and disorganized for use as a primary text in cell biology, but as a guide to histology/microscopy, it is PURE GOLD. The clinical correlates do a good job of briefly explaining pathological processes, but without additional background, it is easy to get lost.

tl;dr Buy it for the pictures, not the words.

Although I am used to college textbooks, I felt that this one got quite wordy and skipped around a bit. I was using it for a physiology class instead of a histology class so I didn't need the entire book. The information is great if you just need some histology background or pictures to study from.

The pictures in this book are perfect. Anyone taking a histology class should have this book; you don't even need to look through a microscope to see what you're looking for!

gorgeous pictures and descriptions, excellent clinical pearls (handy mini notes), and happens to be from my hometown (Vancouver, B.C), what's not to like?
