I love this book! i used to walk around all campus carrying it, not minding how heavy it is. all the chapters are incredibly interesting, I wouldn't close the book until I finish the chapter and absorb and understand how a certain aspect of embryo development happens. each chapter is full of awesome experiments that make you conclude the facts instead of reading them straight away which would have been boring.

This definately is my favorite biology book. it deserves a 5 star rating!and you don't

This book was terrible! I thought it had way too much information in so many parts that made it difficult to get through and in some parts it seemed as if there was not enough information. Overall, the set-up was confusing-- especially taking it model system by model system and I was unimpressed.
