"... so we welcome a new edition of this useful reference book. It will remain popular with both students and with surgical postgraduates"
Journal of Anatomy – 2000
"This is a concise well–written short text of anatomy that is easy to follow..."
Journal of the Royal College of Surgeons – Oct 2000
"As a quick revision reference for both undergraduates and postgraduates ... I would still recommend it."

"Any attempt to summarize the human anatomy in 200 pages of little more than A5 size is an achievement in itself. That it should be clearly written and well–illustrated indeed deserves congratulation." BJS/2000
"This is quite different from other anatomy textbooks. It is based on schematic diagrams with minimal text and is ideal as a revision aid or for quick reference." Aslib book guide/August 2000
"Numerous anatomy textbooks have been written, and personal preference plays a big part in the choice of a textbook. However, there is one book that most agree is essential for learning anatomy, and that is Instant Anatomy. It is clear, concise, and contains all the relevant information for the medical course. Rather than having to crawl through textbooks when all you wanted to know was the exact origin of pectoralis major or the branches of the radial artery, using Instant Anatomy gives instant access to all this information and more"
– GKT Gazette
"Instant Anatomy is, without doubt, the finest book ever written: I would swap my sister for it...Seriously though, this is a very cheeky little book. It does claim to be unique, and I think it is fair to say that, as a quick revision aid, it is unrivalled. The pictures are simple and ingenious ; so much so that one wonder′s why nobody has written a book like this before."
– Murmur, the official publication of the University of Cambridge Medical Society
From the Back Cover
is quite different from the vast number of other anatomy books. The clever structure of the information facilitates accurate and speedy retrieval of anatomical facts, and is very popular with students.
Two features make the book especially useful. First, it stresses anatomical relationships which are even more important now with the increased use of cross sectional scanning and computer generated reconstructional imaging. Second, it allows structures such as blood vessels and nerves to be seen in their entirety instead of regionally as they are so often described in standard textbooks. The section on the autonomic nervous system has been expanded in this second edition to meet the needs of students who often find this area of knowledge so difficult.
Instant Anatomy is ideal for preclinical students with its dictionary–style format. It facilitates rapid revision for the MRCS and AFRCS candidate. It will also be extremely useful for clinicans who need to remind themselves of anatomical facts at all stages of their careers, and for other groups such as physiotherapists and radiographers.
