Published Review: Winner of the "New Edition Edited Book" category at the 2008 Society of Authors, Royal Society of Medicine Book Awards. Reviews from Amazon"This is the book of books for histologists... a virtual bible for the histotechnologist. The book covers everything from laboratory management, fixation (theoretical and practical aspects), sectioning, staining, and an overall and detailed view of histology and immunohistochemistry.""This book is my bible - it's aimed both at the complete beginner and experienced histologist alike and has served me well for many years.It's clearly written in a no frills way giving simple method instructions which are easy to follow in both older and newer techniquesEach technique is always accompanied by simple explanation which is great for students of the art - if you can have just one general histology instruction book make sure that it's this one."
