5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous !!!! 5 July 2006

Having read the previous Student Nurse's review, I decided to purchase this book myself, and I was not disappointed! The fantasitic graphics assist you to follow the body's systems intricately. Cells, Organs and Systems have been magnified to that you can really see the picture of what is going on. I'm sure children would find this book extremely fascinating. Whether or not you need it for study, I'd reccommend having it on your bookshelf for easy reference, as it is quite comprehensive for what may be deemed a 'picture book'.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book for all 9 Nov 2006
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I would like to say that my children aged 4, 9, 10 and 12 absolutely love this book. It is a fountain of knowledge. As a qualified midwife I can see the potential for it's use for health professionals as a starting point but I think this is really aimed at those with just an interest.

Well done Professor Winston, you are truly an inspiration!

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Diagrams 1 July 2007
I purchased this book to use as a teaching aid - I teach secondary school science, and thought the diagrams would be really useful. I wasn't disappointed, and have used this book, in conjunction with other resources, with all of my KS3 classes (11-14 years old). The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was because I thought the CD was rather boring and not up to the standard of the rest of the book. Other than that, I thought this was a really good purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best overall body book 24 Mar 2007
I bought this as my daughter(year5)and my son(year 3)are both doing about the human body, my daughters work is a bit more detailed but it has helped them both. It is very detailed and has laminated pages too. It is really a reference type book, you wouldnt sit down and 'read'it as such. It covers all topics from bones right through to the sexual organs. I think it will see my children right through secondary school too. Only one critisim which is very minor, is that the pages are on a metal ring binder and are not so easy to turn page to page as other bound books, but this does not detract from a well written book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing book and exceptional value. 26 Feb 2006
By A Customer
The layout of the book and the quality of the illustrations is superb and the way the computer CD allows the user to focus dynamically on body detail is captivating. An excellent book for aspiring young medics at an unbelievable price.

2.0 out of 5 stars Misleading 18 Oct 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Fantastic illustrations but massively let down by the lack of textual explanations. Prof. Winston does not do himself justice here. CD that accompanies the item only works on old operating systems and is as basic as it gets. Certainly not up to it's over-hyped readup.

It has some useful information in, but not as much as you'd need for an academic level unless you're still in school.
