  • Great book with lots of pictues! Although I know there are alot more that could have been out into this book.. The photos are more artistic rather than just showing you the display...meaning sometimes it is not in focus or not a photo of the whole display... Example is a close up shot of a fetus skeleton face...the caption reads :"a fetus with clubfoot" The photo does not show the feet al all! Over all its a grat book if you can not visit the meuseam in person. I gave it a out of 5 because there is so much more that could have been out in
