4.0 out of 5 stars An excellent, comprehensive text 19 Jan 2000
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
This book is expressed very clearly, it is comprehensive yet concise, it covers everything an undergraduate student would need for his/her anatomy studies. An excellent book, but a bit too expensive.

5.0 out of 5 stars Get THIS version, not a paperback! It's the best! 7 Sep 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Gray's Anatomy, first published in 1858, is thought by the average layman to be merely a historical classic, and is usually purchased as a paperback reprint of the 1905 version.
If you want the most up-to-date description of human anatomy, steer clear of the paperbacks and buy the 38th edition in hardback. It costs a lot more, but it is more than worth it. It contains an amazing amount of technical information that has only been discovered in the last ten or twenty years (such as the spiral architecture of the heart, MRI imagery, and details of microbiology and cellur arcitecture). It even contains a nice summary of the history of the universe. If I had the rest of my life (I'm a 35-year old engineer) to do nothing but read this book, I could not come close to absorbing all knowledge it contains.
I firmly believe that this is the most important book I own.
I recommend this book highly to anyone who wishes to learn more about the marvelous machine that is the human body.

5.0 out of 5 stars A cogent description of the human body. 7 Dec 1999
By Kersi Von Zerububbel - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
This book is truly a masterpiece. The writing and layout is good. Descriptions and illustrations are clear and well done. I am not a medical professional and yet I find this book fascinating in its breadth and scope. To better comprehend some of the anatomical structures I first read relevant portions of this book and then go to Netter's Atlas Of Human Anatomy. One point of caution though - get the 38th British Edition. This is by far superior to the American Edition which costs half as much. The extra money spent will be well worth it. After all there is a lifetime of adventure embedded in this volume.

5.0 out of 5 stars Grays: The fundamental medical book 24 Feb 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Instead of purchasing a book for embroyology, one for histology, one for anatomy, etc., if you are starting into medicine, save your pennies and just get a Gray's Anatomy. Everything that you will need to know in your career is within its pages. The cellular illustrations are perfect, and it is far easier to work with a book that is unified, so that when an anatomical feature is described, the reference is given to the page in the embroyology describing where it originated, and to a specific histological feature. The book is written by a team of experts and edited precisely, so the knowledge is cutting edge in every discipline, and holds far fewer errors than other textbooks. Buy this book and keep it on your shelf throughout school and then move it to your doctor's office.

5.0 out of 5 stars The human body in perspective 1 April 2005
By A. Shankar - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
This book is a masterpiece. Gray's has a legacy of being an authority on gross anatomy but now it offers more. Not only does it have leading and valid information about the human body, this book covers gross anatomy, histology and even molecular aspects of the human body.

I dont know if any other text comes close to the depth and density of information that this contains. I personally own the CD version and I find it to be extremely user friendly. It would be a must for anyone entering medicine or allied health studies.

It is a really good reference material and thats how it should be addressed, as a reference material. It often fills in the gaps where you need it the most. I have found that in my first two years in premed it was instrumental.
