    I bought this book with the goal to review current mortuary science information. Since I have graduated from a mortuary sciences program many years ago, I found this book was an overall worthwhile review with a few updates for me. It is basic enough and covers relevant material and I can see why it would be used as a text for entry level mortuary science students. My two reservations are: 1. The text is only a basic survey level book. (Having recently taken a 5 unit college course in Microbiology, I quickly realized it is not even close to breadth or depth in comparison to texts for college level Microbiology.) Therefore, I concluded this text can’t be used as a significant or a complete resource, to aid those already in the field, or those who may need more knowledge. 2. The book is lacking in the aspect of bridging the material to direct application for funeral home employees and embalmers; the few random mentions of such could be greatly improved and would make the book far more useful to all level of readers. What few “connections” that were there, I did find helpful, but I found wanting far more that this book offered.

    This was the required textbook for 2 of my Funeral Service Education program courses; 1 quarter of Pathology (which is fascinating) and 1 Quarter of Microbiology (which is a bit harder).

    If you’re really interested in either Pathology or Microbiology, like I am, then this book will serve you well to not only enhance your knowledge, but will also be used while you’re taking either or both of these courses.

    I recommend keeping this book even when you finish your program of study.

    You never know when you’ll need to refer back to it!!!
