I like it because it is geared towards what we as histotechs see and use
in a routine histology lab. Not all the details that can only be seen on
EM and never stained for with histology special stains or IM stains.

"rectangles" of text that relate to pathology and disease.

In other words, if the chapter is on liver, in addition to the usual
text on the parts and cells of a liver, there are drawings of the 3D
liver, drawings of the cells, H&E's of overview of liver, and close ups
of portal triads, discussion of cirrhosis and the causes, and a
trichrome of cirrhosis.
