"Textbook of Human Embryology" is meant for undergraduate medical students. The book provides basic fundamental information on development anatomy.
This is a great book. You don't have to be a rocket scientist to understand what is being explained.
The graphics are great and helpful to visualize concepts and stages of development. It's paperback and light weight, which helps when you have to carry it around in a backpack. The only con is that the animations on the website are very short, some less than 30 seconds, with no text or audio explanation of what is being shown. This book is a vast improvement over the 3rd edition written mostly by Larsen and completed by others. It makes the study of embryology, well, not enjoyable, but at least painless.
The authors have corrected previous editorial blunders like missing colors, but they didn't catch them all, like the missing heart outline in the last image of the systemic venous system. Other image improvements are the addition of more labeled components of images carried over from the 3rd edition; still not enough in some cases, though.
Pointless images have been removed, mostly SEMs. The heart chapter has been completely rewritten, with diagrams that make a previously obscure exposition readable. Embryonic folding, always a tough read, has been split to the gastrointestinal, body cavity, and week 4 chapters, which makes more sense. Molecular and clinical information is spread throughout each chapter at appropriate places, instead of being lumped together at the end, and of course, it's all up to date well, for There are several new well-written and illustrated chapters.
The book retains the reversed definitions of the aorticorenal and superior mesenteric ganglia, despite the fact that both are correctly labeled in the identical diagrams of the two editions. Supporting evidence that no one actually proofread this section is that, like the previous edition, "superior mesenteric ganglia" is not in bold font, as are the other two ganglia. This error would have been corrected were it not for the second most annoying practice of this publisher, which is their refusal to post errata for any textbook or to give readers a way to report errors to them.
The preface to this edition has an email address for one of the authors whom I have advised of the ganglia error. The most annoying practice is their gobbling up of a large fraction of screen real estate with their pretentious logo, titling, menus, buttons, and other nonsense, in the studentconsult online version of the book.
And they are not interested in hearing from you about it. But all that is moot, because studentconsult is a complete farce, including animations which confuse more than elucidate. And they kept the word "anlage", which hasn't been spoken by man or beast in decades.
In a short section of the Introduction entitled "Phases of Human Embryology", the word 'purpose' is used seven times. This is an affront to the scientifically enlightened does not include most med students , because it promotes the notion of teleology, which, unless you're a member of the Flat Earth Society, is bullbleep.
Subliminal messages, possibly unintended, inculcate incorrect notions in the naive reader, and can adversely affect clinical practice. I recommend that all words suggestive of teleology be excised for the next edition. For starters, replace 'purpose' with 'effect'. All that aside, this is probably the best embryo book on the market for the serious medical student or resident.
Those who only want to memorize answers for Step 1 should find something simpler, like a dime-thin USMLE review book that drills on answers with no pretense of teaching anything.
Such comic book level reviews, however, will not even approximate in number the cornucopia of pathologies in Larsen's. This book is great for going over the subject a first time through.
The main text sections aren't so long and thick that you can't read them a usual problem , but are interspersed with lots of further detail which you can take or leave. Some of the molecular detail is a bit much if you're not an embryology researcher, but is good as a reference. My main qualm with this version compared with past ones is that the chapters are oddly organized.
It takes apart elements that should be in the same chapter together and their all-pertinent drawings! The "Fetus as a Patient" chapter should be at the end, after the development is completely elucidated, and not shoved somewhere towards the beginning. Why did they take out the old glossary that used to be at the end of the book? Otherwise, great book! Had this book for my Embryology course and it is amazing. It's really easy to follow, the online supplemental materials are fantastic.
I recommend getting it new. That said, you don't even have to be a student to appreciate how awesome this book is. I find myself constantly looking at it even after my course finished just looking up interesting factoids with my wife.
Great download, great read. This is a great book esp. I used this in my first year of med school and it served me very well. I borrowed Langmans from a friend but had a really hard time understanding the text. It's super short and doesn't explain things nearly as well as this book but if you've already had some embryology I can see how some might prefer Langmans- it's very short and concise. Larsen's is a bit wordy, and long but it was helpful to me.

A psychosocial study of contraception, and the problems related to contraception as they arc found among "the poor" is at best a very difficult task.
Unfortunately, little of the task was performed in this study. The book proves nothing new, gives no new information, and, unfortunately, treats the psychological problems in a very superficial manner. Springfield, Ill. In order to produce a textbook of embryology for the medical student that will not only provide a knowledge of developmental anatomy but which would also provide some insight into the clinical manifestations of the field of embryology, Professor Harrison has begun with the chicken instead of the egg, and starts by reviewing the anatomy and physiology of the adult male and female reproductive systems.
Following in a logical manner, he proceeds through fertilization, nidation, and early embryo growth. By limiting the number of photomicrographs and by utilizing simplified line drawings he presents a complete summary of the early developmental phases. There is an excellent chapter on the development of the placenta with mention of its role in such clinical entities as placenta previa and Rh sensitization and a short summary of its hormone functions and relationships.
