`Review from previous edition Wolpert is great as the first text students get on this subject...It is concise and clear, and excellent for getting those principles over without too much detail.'
`I like the fact that Wolpert illustrates well all the principles of developmental biology and gives my students the background to read and understand research articles and at the same time does not cover all the fine details where the students can get lost and fail to learn the basic
principles of developmental biology. This is one of my principal reasons for choosing the Wolpert textbook as the primary textbook in my course.
