Important but overpriced.,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Laboratory Animal Pocket Reference Series: The Laboratory Rat / PlasticComb (Plastic Comb)
This book is a welcome addition for the in vivo investigator; we know so much about the theoretical bases of our experiments, but how many of us really have any formal knowledge of our most important research tools, the animals themselves? For this reason, and in the interest of the general welfare of my experimental rats, I bought the book. There is much interesting and useful information presented by veterinarians who specialize in lab animal medicine.
But considering the plain xerox paper stock upon which this small pocket reference is printed, the price is outrageous. In addition to the paper stock, the copy-machine quality of printing helps make a muddled mockery of the alleged cytological preparations and micrographs that are attemptedly presented as figures. The condensed nature of the book was probably unnecessary considering the lack of this genre in the current literature. Furthermore, glaringly absent (in the midst of anatomical description) are any anatomical figures whatsoever, depicting any functional anatomy useful to the investigator.
I suggest this book if your institution pays for it.

This review is for a different book. This book is not pocket sized, nor is it soft cover. He/she is thinking of another book with a similar title.
