REVIEWS

“This book is clearly well written and this has been a real eye opener as to how clean and colorful a text can be in embryology, ultimately making it such a joy to learn from. I am quite happy I was able to come across this text and see how much different and better it is than what I used for my embryology.” --Student Reviewer

“Illustrations are very pleasing to the reader. I am thoroughly impressed with the figures and respective images. The shear [sic] number of examples I am able to see through example figures/images is very captivating and engaging as a student.” --Student Reviewer
