4.0 out of 5 stars Only reason I passed my exams 6 Sep 2003
By L-J
The "colouring book" series is a godsend to students tired of laboriously trawling through text books. For anatomy the diagrams are clear and accurate and the systems sections add depth of knowledge. I think they're great!

5.0 out of 5 stars fantastic 30 Jun 1999
By A Customer
Learn lots by choosing which things to share color...where are the connections. Overheads made from this book were just used by a friend of mine to present a lecture to neurology residents. He said they made his lecture a great success.

5.0 out of 5 stars Consultant neurologist 2 Aug 2012
I was appointed as a Consultant Neurologist at a London teaching hospital in 1982 and I bought this book looking for some aids to teaching neuro anatomy. I can only say that this is the best book that I have found in over 30 years as a Consultant Neurologist in teaching medical students neuro anatomy.

Most medical students end up with knowing only that one side of the brain supplies the other side of the body. Goodness knows how one reviewer said that his grand daughter found it interesting to colour in.( perhaps she is now a famous consultant neurosurgeon or neurologist).

I appreciate that not everyone enjoys 'colouring in' , but even if you do not, can I say that if every one of my medical students understood, and remembered what is in this book they would have a wonderful grasp of how the nervous system is organised.

I have recommended it to every generation of medical students that I have taught, and know how much time and expertise have gone into it's preparation. It is a wonderful resource to any medical student, and I am still referring to the diagrams so many years later.

I would strongly recommend it to any medical student, even if you are not prepared to do the colouring in. If you are prepared to do the colouring in you would benefit greatly. If you knew what was in this book you would be firmly set on your path to become a consultant neurologist.

A wonderful resource.

5.0 out of 5 stars the only sane way to learn the brain 31 Oct 2009
this book is for all levels, general interest up to degree and beyond. on every double page spread there are fantastic notes accompanied by equally good diagrams that you can colour in to help with differentiation of parts as this is an issue with this part of the body. its a great learning tool and excellent reference too. there is no better book for this purpose!
p.s it is by no means just the brain its the whole nervous system in depth

5.0 out of 5 stars Brain colouring Fun 22 April 2010
What a genius Idea. A colouring book for adults! As a student of psychology with a very visual learning process, this book is fantastic! and fun. You read the info on the left and colour the templates on the right, as it tells you to do so.Simples! Its like painting by numbers with a few more grown up words thrown in! Haven't finished it yet but if you want some less intense learning, ie not sat at the books and want to have a bit more fun with your learning, the colour association bases behind this book's teaching methods is again an essential tool for anyone studying the brain and its functions. Brilliant!

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing! 21 Feb 2011
By alimor
I am really glad I decided to get this book. I was surprised when it arrived that it was so thick! I hadn't checked out the number of pages in the desription so was expecting something much thinner; especially for the price!

It's early days yet (I've only coloured the first two) but I plan to work my way through the book and colour in every plate! I'm even going to buy some good quality pencil crayons to do it justice as my daughter's school ones are a bit naff.

I recommend this most highly :D

The level of detail is excellent and ensures the book is approachable and informative enough for medical school standard neuroanatomy.

Never have I seen so many anatomical diagrams of the brain and its constituent cells/areas with such detail. Adds some fun to what would be textbook reading. Great buy
