Review quote

-This is an excellent study guide for medical, dental, or other health science students. The ninth edition includes numerous color diagrams, gross photographs, diagnostic images, and a small but captivating set of three-dimensional animations, which help make a difficult topic easier to understand.-- Harris Goodman, MD (Saint Francis Memorial Hospital) 4 star Doody rating!
