Book is somewhat dated now having been printed in the 1980s what the history probably accurate. The book doesn't really tell you a whole lot about how the discoveries were made beyond the fact it involved dissection, microscopy, and/or selective removal or observation of accidental removal / damage. A lot of space is devoted to the origin of eponyms which is not particularly interesting. The organization is by body system but within each section it's pretty haphazard. The book is full of nice illustrations but its not worth much more than just skimming the pictures. There's not a lot of great insight into the discovery process itself. ( )
