To make the subject interesting, relevant clinical conditionis are presented in simple language under the heading "clinical application".

All the chapters are well written with utmost clarity which gives sound knowlege of histology and at the end of most of the chapters at attempt has been made to provide a few hints to the students for identification of the slides.

The book is well illustrated. All of the diagrams are simple and clearly drawn, with the aim that students should not have any difficulty in reproducing them. For the comprehensive understanding of the histological structure of the tissue or organ, the colour diagrams, at most places, are preceded by the line diagrams of the same tissue or organ.
