Fascia: What Is and Why It Matters is a remarkably lucid text for such a multifaceted topic. Once again, David Lesondak demonstrates his extraordinary ability to distill complex science and clinical practice into remarkably compelling and lucid prose. His creative illustrations lure you in to keep on exploring, page after page. As an interested scientist and diagnostic pathologist, reading this book stretches my imagination and gives meaningful contexts for everything I see under my microscopic.
