Covers the basics of space physiology in a good level of detail. Unfortunately falls down in being listed as published in 2012. This printing may well be 2012 but the content and the book contained within is still the original 1982 edition as the typeface suggests. This doesn't detract from this being an excellent resource for those seeking to gain a good overview of space medicine and physiology but more up to date references and research is out there. Would benefit greatly from modernisation and updating. I should have looked a bit closer prior to purchase as I was after something a bit more up to date but that's my mistake and not the book's mistake and is an excellent opening price for anyone interested in looking further into space medicine and physiology.

This is not a current book!14 Mar. 2014
- Published on Amazon.com
Although it says published in 2012, it is nothing more than a new cover on a book from the 80's. Although the information may be good, it is not current as one would think with a publishing date of 2012. The only part that is new is the cover. Very misleading marketing!
