I Recommend 2nd edition
By Nicole M Kearney on Nov 05, 2012
I high recommend investigating the differences between editions prior to making a purchase. The second edition is rooted in the variants of normal histology, electron microscopy and biology, and structure-function theory; subsequent editions to tend to focus slightly more on disease processes and special stains, with, I think, a bit of a loss of what made the book so great. That said, there's no other book like it, any edition. However, for an in-depth investigation of the variants of normal histology and structure-function relationships, I think the second edition is superior.
Big but essential

Thank you amazon for the prompt delivery. This book is indispensable for both practicing pathologists and pathologists on training. I think the editors could bring more attractive illustrations to the new edition, otherwise the pictures are superb and efficient. The immense references made the book rather voluminous, which could be deducted and included in the electronic version.
Superb book packed with valuable information well presented

As veterinary pathologists involved in drug safety we use this book for human comparisons and for placing lesions we see in animals in context for human risk. Cannot recommend highly enough and for the price incredible value.
