Format: Paperback
I wasn't too optimistic about the book when I first recieved it. It didn't look as intense as other anatomy books. But then when I started reviewing from it, that's when I realized that this book has got everything in it! It's even makes some body parts easy to learn by creating nemonics. It's very handy and very cruscial if you want to make anatomy digestable.

Quirky Mnemonics that Stick 20 Mar. 2004
By John - Published on
Format: Paperback
I used this book when studying for my medical school gross anatomy course. When I first read over the sections I was studying in class, I thought that the mnemonic devices were somewhat silly and did not try to depend much on them. However, when I found myself in my first written and practical exams, I began reciting some of the seemingly ridiculous analogies from the book. It turned out to be an excellent help. Clinical Anatomy Made Ridiculously Simple is divided into 17 chapters organized by systems. There are two tables of contents, one that follows the systemic outline of the book and another that jumps around pages but is organized into regions of the body. This makes it easy to approach the book from either the systems or regional study. It touched on virtually every aspect that we covered in class. It is easy to understand and will help the reader when he/she has gotten bogged down in anatomical jargon. Although one should not depend on this book a sole text for the study of anatomy, it would make an excellent companion to any anatomy course.

Salvation for the 3-D challanged 13 Dec. 2004
By MostlyHarmless - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I discovered this book during the last third of the med school anatomy course and it literally changed my perspective on the subject. Being a very visual learner, I'd fall asleep after reading one paragraph of Moore. And constructing a three dimensional picture from reading the text - forget it. The analogies in this book worked great for me. It was a great way to see the 'big picture' before searching for details in Moore. It is also surprisingly detailed for such a small book. (You will still need a 'big' textbook, though) I wish all of my books there written in similar style, but I realize some people might not like it. For example, if you enjoy reading Moore, this book is probably not for you. On the other hand, if you find anatomy to be unbearably dry, I highly recommend this book.

Addendum: (2010) So, it has been 6 years since my med school anatomy class and I just recently pulled my 'Ridiculously Simple Anatomy' off the shelf to quickly look something up, because I still remember the things I learned from it - and that's a definition of a good book in my book!

Another Masterpiece... 14 Dec. 2003
By Rodney Eddi - Published on
Format: Paperback
After "Microbiology Made ...", this is the best book in this series. Most medical graduates don't like studying anatomy for USMLE, but this book will really help. Excellent pictures, mnemonics and stories will help you to remember important facts without memorizing. If you have any doubt about this book, just read "Brachial Plexus" section.

Great General Knowledge of Anatomy 9 Jan. 2002
By James - Published on
Format: Paperback
If you want a general idea of anatomy this book is great. It goes through the whole book giving easily understood samples and pictures. The only minor problem i have with this book is that it doesn't go to in depth on explaning things but then again that's why it's called ridiculously simple and not in depth and complex.

Good Buy 20 Jun. 2004
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
I thought this was a great supplement during my course study of anatomy. It does not cover everything, but that's when you go to made some things very clear and easy to memorize that were important clinically. I think it was worth the investmenet. But of course the humor may not appeal to all...more for the visual learner I think...
