Product Description

About the Author

Elaine N. Marieb began her teaching career at Springfield College, where she taught A&P to physical education majors.  She then joined the faculty of the Biological Science Division of Holyoke Community College with a Ph.D. in zoology from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. As a result of her contact with her students at Holyoke Community College, many of whom were pursuing degrees in nursing, she developed a desire to better understand the relationship between the scientific study of the human body and the clinical aspects of nursing practice.  Still teaching full-time, Dr. Marieb pursued her nursing education, which culminated in a Master of Science degree with a clinical specialization in gerontology from the University of Massachusetts.  It is this experience, along with stories from the field–including those of former students now in health careers–that has informed the development of the unique perspective and accessibility for which her texts and laboratory manuals are known. 


Katja Hoehn is an instructor in the Department of Chemical, Biological, and Environmental Sciences at Mount Royal College in Calgary, Canada. She received her M.D. (with Distinction) from the University of Saskatchewan, and her Ph.D. in Pharmacology from Dalhousie University. Dr. Hoehn has been a contributor to several books and has written numerous research papers in Neuroscience and Pharmacology.  In 1991, the Dalhousie Medical Research Foundation presented her with the Max Forman (Jr.) Prize for excellence in medical research.  During her 11 years at Mount Royal College, Dr. Hoehn has received numerous awards including a PanCanadian Educational Technology Faculty Award (1999), a Teaching Excellence Award from the Student’s Association of Mount Royal College (2001), and the Mount Royal College Distinguished Faculty Teaching award (2004).  She is also actively involved in the Human Anatomy and Physiology Society (HAPS).

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't buy before reading down;) 25 Oct 2013
By Hasan
Firstly as a medical student( especially form the dry first year) absolutely recommended! Why?
1. Explains physiology with anatomy that every medical student needs to
2. Up-to-date graphs and visualization of anatomical parts of human body( even enough for second years too, the same explanatory basis as like 'Netter's Anatomical Atlas')
3. Everyone can by ownself can look up of every anatomical-physiological books on shelves and I'm sure will not find such an amazing student-friendly book !
But, my advice to you try to find this book from library rather than to pay for it, may wonder why? Cuz for the next semesters it won't meet your needs in medicine.... U'll need special books like Guyton's Phyciology ( also this very book should-be-read by every student of wants to get acquainted with ongoing processes in our body thru different aspect of view)

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my favorite school books (if that's possible) 25 Aug 2007
By S. Richards - Published on
I can't tell you how sad I was when I found out that the City Colleges of Chicago decided to use Principles of Anatomy and Physiology by Tortora and Derrickson for the second course of Anatomy and Physiology instead of this book. This book does a great job of putting the subjects in an order that is good to follow, with a plethora of great photos and drawings, and puts a section called Homeostatic Imbalance right after a section and explains some problems that go wrong in the part of the human body. Most chapters even have a closer look section with a rather corny title that they think is funny with an article that is usually topical and relevant. Really go above and beyond in muscle and bone chapters (giving you both a detailed drawing and actual picture of almost everything). Also, wrote in a style that is easy to understand; goes from the basics to the details of a subject very smoothly. Even my girlfriend, who has no interest in a career in the medical world, has flipped through most of the book and asked questions or stated how awesome something is. I plan on keeping this book to reference to for a long time.

5.0 out of 5 stars College student 6 Oct 2007
By K. Brooks - Published on
I love this book because it is extremely thourough. When I was in anatomy class I had to teach the course to myself because the professor never taught anatomy. So I studied from this book and I got an A in the course. It gets in depth about the macroscopic AND microscopic anatomy and describes the anatomy/physiology/functions/and detailed pictures.

5.0 out of 5 stars Out of date but still relevant 22 May 2010

This book is an older edition however most professors are still allowing their students to use it because there are hardly any differences between this edition and the newest edition. A great way to save money!!!

1.0 out of 5 stars Get the older's cheaper 20 May 2009
By notAyesperson - Published on
This book is identical to her previous ed. with Apolo Anton Ohno on it. All she has done to this newer book with Williams on it is to add about 3 pages, changed her color coding, ISBN # and cover photo. You spend about $50 more for a book that is identical in contents to one you can easily find on e bay for so much less.

The text is well written. The study guide is extremely helpful. The ADAM interactive CD set is a MUST. It is awsome at explaining visually what the book and study guide put in writing.
