"This is an excellent introduction to classical human embryology from a mechanistic and molecular viewpoint. It fills an important niche at a time when medical educators are faced with a conundrum. The genetic basis of disease and development are becoming more stressed in medicine at the same time that there is decreased coverage of classical embryology in the undergraduate medical curriculum, where it has been subjugated to a few lectures in most anatomy courses. The speed of change in the growing field of molecular and developmental biology warrants this revised and updated version. Overall, it improves upon the third edition it replaces, with improved artwork and the new approach to the development of the head that dental students will find very useful." - Mark Jaffe, DPM, MHSA (Nova Southeastern University), from Doody's Reviews
"This is an excellent content bridge between anatomy and clinical practice: the vignettes are great and the images from the book are available online and downloadable as slides. It could become a best seller as its content and presentation are excellent, and the web-based support is very good." BMA Book Awards 2009 - judges comments
