Although the other two are beneficial for more detailed accounts, Sadler gives the quickest and clearest grasp of the essential points. Sadler and Larsen write with more lucid prose and have a clearer conceptual flow than Moore & Persaud, but Sadler has the advantage of brevity for readers who do not need the minutiae.
Sadler also outshines the other two books in the clarity and color schemes of the line art (although not in number of illustrations). The art and photography in this book make the complex 3-dimensional changes of embryology as easy to visualize as one could hope. I find the pink and yellow color scheme in much of Moore & Persaud's line art, and the pink cast of many of the fetal photographs, unappealing.
Larsen is the only one of these books with a glossary. Sadler and Moore are the only ones with clinical case studies to test the reader's insight and problem-solving ability; both offer an appendix of solutions to the clinical problems. All three books have clinical application sidebars or chapter sections. The clinical applications in Moore are especially numerous, perhaps even to the point of distraction as they sometimes overshadow the main text. All three books have bibliographies for further reading on each chapter, with the larger Larsen and Moore books offering somewhat more references than Sadler.Read more ›
Aside from the obvious lack of effort in editing, this book has several good things about it.Read more ›
