Format: Paperback
Human Physiology is a useful introductory text to physiology, particularly for first year medical students who may find some of the more detailed texts somewhat overwhelming. This book is well written and approaches the various topics clearly and systematically. Unfortunately it does not provide quite enough detail to be used as a primary reference source, though it can be valuable if used along side another more detailed book such as 'Physiology' from Berne and Levy.

Format: Paperback
This book is easy to read but also gives enough details to cover the essentials of a human physiology course. The lay-out breaks it down into clear sections that make it easier to read and learn. It explains itself clearly and makes some of the more complicated issues easier to handle and digest. If you are having difficulty with another text then get/use this one!

Format: Paperback
Well laid out. easy to read. lots of nice diagrams. ok so it won't get you honours points but should contain enough to pass and is far less intimidating than those huge physiology texts. great for preclinical medics. not enough detail for pure physiology students though.

Format: Paperback
My biggest issue with this textbook is that every term is defined once and only once. If you miss the first definition or have skipped that particular section one cannot rely on any subsequent help. There are no reminders. In general it is not easy to study from.

The best textbook i have ever come across, and therefore my benchmark for all other textbooks is organic chemistry by clayden. Since the clayden textbook has demonstrated to me how easy and almost enjoyable learning can be, i find the pocock textbook frustrating that less effort has been made to make it understandable.

Really well written book that provides explanations to all the subtopics in physiology. I used this as an introductory text to all my modules for the first 2 years of the Medicine course.

This book is sooooo helpful! It covers everything and it analyses everything in a simple way which you can understand! A really useful book for all medics! You should buy it 100%! I used a lot of physiology books until I decided that this is the one that suits me best!
