Product Description


"Beautiful illustrations. Clinically orientated - lots of surface anatomy, lots of clinical cases, and well explained and annotated radiology cases as well! The excellent short chapter on imaging in the introduction is also very helpful and useful. This book is a really helpful resource for any medical student." BMA Book Awards 2009 - judges comments

"I particularly like the diagrams, which are clearly labelled, not cluttered, and helpfully coloured...this textbook is great. It is well-tailored to students, providing the anatomy information that we need to know. It gets a big 'thumbs up'" - Medical Student, University of Oxford (review of previous edition) "...explains anatomy in a way that is easy to understand, but also puts the text in a clinical context along the way.The Interactive Surface Anatomy is very useful and well made - a great example of how Student Consult can provide teaching tools that simplifies complex subjects in a way no book can." - Medical Student, University of Copenhagen(review of previous edition)

"This second edition of the hugely popular Gray's Anatomy is an indisputable reference tool for the detailed study of human anatomy; suitable, due to its clinical orientation, for both students and all health professionals. The authors come from a strong and diverse range of teaching and clinical backgrounds and have collaborated to update and revise this new edition in order to meet the demands of the modern anatomy course more effectively. Their concern is to make the information accessible, easy to master and, above all, reliable - and to produce an up-to-date book on anatomy that is simple, easy to understand and enjoyable to read."

This review is for the Second Edition (2009) of Gray's Anatomy, some of the reviews on here are for the First Edition. I've outlined the significant changes below.

A major change in the second edition is the first chapter. A lot of the material has been shifted from various chapters in the previous edition into a neatly organised introduction for the book. The new section, 'Body Systems', as the name suggests covers the skeletal, skin and fascia, muscular, cardiovascular, lymphatic and nervous system. Other changes include well placed 'In the Clinic' boxes that highlight relevant clinical data. There are many other changes and a general improvement in some of the artwork.

As an added bonus, registration with Student Consult gives you an electronic version of the book with a useful search tool and extras such as Image Library (download images for your own use), interactive self-assessment questions and animations amongst others.

Overall, the diagrams are of a high order (as is to be expected from Gray's Anatomy) and well labeled. The 'In the clinic' boxes put the material into a relevant context which are refreshing to read after memorising large chunks of anatomical information! The entire book has been well indexed by segragating topics into different regions. This is a worthwhile investment for any medical student.

This is by far the best educational textbook I have ever worked with. Our clinical anatomist claims its only use is as a door stop, however in a matter of weeks (and some considerable effort) Grays Anatomy for students (2009)has provided a deep appreciation and understanding of the sectional anatomy we have covered. It covers every angle, the theory, the visual and the clinical. I find its level of explination perfect, not to simplified, not too deep.

When I am studying I have a medical dictionary at hand, I use this to translate the latin/greek into English, I find this helpfull in searing things to memory. It would be very helpfull if Grays did this, maybe in the header of the page, e.g. Brachial [Arm] or Cubital [Armpit].

Grey also has another weakness, I am privelaged enough to be partaking in Full Human Dissection at my medical school. The imagery in Greys is excellent for learning concepts and to gain an understanding, however (in general)it in no way relates to how it really looks in the body. All images (except x-ray's etc and the very few dissection picture)are just schematic.

It is essential to have a good Human Atlas of anatomy to work alongside Grays. McMinns is the IDEAL textbook for this.

Grays is an ESSENTIAL textbook for anyone learning human anatomy. It has its weaknesses, but these are usually on the outskirts of Grays mission objective, Grays focuses on enabling an understanding and theory longside a schematic visual appreciation. This it does better than any other book.

NOTE: there are various Grays anatomy, this is the one for students, this contains the level of understanding required, the bigger Greys anatomy are the bibles for Clinical anatomists.

To learn anatomy there is no better tool out there than Grays Anatomy for Students. It's greatest strength, as emphasised by anyone and everyone are the quality of the illustrations. It is truly unmatched in this regard by any other book - the schematics really allow you to visualise the structures before seeing them in reality (you may need to purchase an Atlas as a supplement to assist in this regard - I personally use the fantastic "Color Atlas of Anatomy by Rohen, Rokochi and Drecoll").
I found the text to be of an appropriate detail though occasionally overburdening in terms of volume of reading. The text highlighted in green represents information of clinical relevance which focuses and contextualises your learning and makes a change from having to read straight anatomy!
Whilst it may be daunting to see the size of the textbook - Moore & Agur Essential Clinical Anatomy seems half the size for what is essentially the same information, I would go for Grays as it presents information in a more readable format. This point can't be emphasised enough till you've used something else to really appreciate just how great the focussed region by region learning style of Grays really is. Occasionally it can be a little frustrating but it's a trade off rather than having information about lots of different structures thrown into a paragraph e.g. about the thorax which one cannot fully understand till they've read the chapter fully.
You'll usually find the surface anatomy is sufficient though I often tended to use another text out of habit than anything else.
All in all, this is a truly fantastic book that you can't really go wrong with. The different textbooks have different styles so it's a case of finding what suits you, but I would imagine this suits most!

Format: Paperback
At the beginning of the Anatomy and Morphology course, we were suggested not to buy this book since it was said to be completely useless or, at least, 10% of what was required to know.

Far from being completely wrong, it turned out that this book was an excellent buy for one part of the anatomy exam in my university, namely topographical anatomy. It contains basically all that is needed to know in order to get that part of the course done. I actually studied topography only on these one, except for a few parts about muscles classifications, a few more detailed parts of the splanchnocranium and paravertebral chains.

First of all, it des NOT contain neuroanatomy. It passes through the topographical anatomy of the cranium, cranial nerves with their courses, the main nerves passing through and around the skull, bones and muscles of head and neck region. It also describes the eye and the ear, but do not expect fascicles, brain structures or brainstem.

For each body region, e.g. the thorax, it passes through surface anatomy (few pages each), division of the internal spaces, the organs, their internal structures, muscles with fasciae, vascularization (lymphatics included), innervation and how to locate structures from body landmarks. Every section has tables and summaries for every mnemonic aspect (e.g. muscles are listed accordingly to their position, compartment and layer, and the origins, the attachments, actions and innervations are provided very clearly; the same is true for nerves and plexuses, cranial foramina, the main vascular trees and so on).

The images are absolutely AMAZING.
