Sperber partnered with his son, Dr Steven Sperber, a clinical geneticist, to develop the Craniofacial embryogenetics and development series, which have since been employed throughout the world as a primary teaching resource. We have experienced a substantial amount of progress in the field of embryology within the last decade, since the second edition of this book was originally published. On entering its third edition, the integration of modern genetics with embryology has enabled the creation of a more relevant and advanced text.
The book is well-structured, and the content can be easily navigated, as it is split into two main sections with 20 chapters. Whilst the sheer volume of content may seem overwhelming, the text is easily absorbed, and has a fantastic combination of diagrams, photographs, 3D illustrations, graphs and summary tables to aid learning.
Additionally, following each chapter there is a selected bibliography, to allow an enthusiastic reader to gain further knowledge of relevant literature. The first section provides a sound foundation for the reader on general embryology, with emphasis in individual chapters on embryogenesis of the orofacial and pharyngeal regions, and bone development.
Within this section, succinct table summaries are well laid out and provide a helpful overview of the information discussed. It is essential for the reader to gain a thorough understanding of the basic concepts of general embryology, in order to truly appreciate the craniofacial development discussion that is detailed in later chapters. Section two encompasses craniofacial development, and 13 chapters are anatomically structured, to include the major craniofacial skeletal structures; such as the calvaria, cranial base, facial skeleton and mandible.
Additionally, there are chapters on development and growth of the palate, temporomandibular joint, soft tissues and odontogenesis. Excellent description and illustration of the craniofacial complex anatomy within this section allows the information to be easily processed and well understood. The final chapter is comprised of a page table on craniofacial disorders with known single-gene mutations, which gives a current and useful overview of disorders directly linked with associated genes.
Overall, the third edition of Craniofacial embryogenetics and development provides outstanding contribution to current literature.
This book is comprehensive, well-written and supported by excellent illustrations and summary tables. It is an ideal craniofacial biology reference text for any undergraduate or postgraduate health sciences professional, or specialist within the dental or medical field. Ayesha Khan.

Craniofacial embryogenetics and development, third edition
The insights of genetic expression in determining the unfolding of the embryonic layers have revolutionized our understanding of some of the mechanisms of embryogenesis. As implied by the title of the third edition, Craniofacial Embryogenetics and Development, genetics is linked with embryology in this text. Virtually all embryological development has an underlying genetic component, and the basic science of genetics is the key in uncovering the many mysteries of embryogenesis. The tools of molecular genetics have provided insights into developmental mechanisms that allow us the ability to identify transient regions of genetic expression patterns. Unraveling the precise biochemical and mechanical interactions of discrete regions in the unfolding embryonic components remains a dauntingly complex challenge to understanding the conversion of the genome into the phenome. The addition of genetic information gleaned from other mammalian species might aid in dissecting human embryology into comprehensible components to understand normal and abnormal development.
Craniofacial Embryogenetics and Development
DeepDyve Craniofacial development, by G. Sperber Craniofacial development, by G. Sperber Cunningham, Michael L. Geoffrey Sperber are a remarkable compilation of the basic embryology, biology, and malformation of human craniofacial structures. This organization allows the reader to review the current knowledge of the basic principles of embryogenesis, in order to apply these principles to the development of craniofacial structures. Each chapter outlines development from embryogenesis to the mature form, and gives examples of malformations that underscore the developmental pathogenesis. The text should be ideal as a personal or library reference for detailed information on the development of craniofacial structures.
