I purchased this book as it is a requirement for a course which I am due to commence and one of the subjects I have to study is anatomy and physiology. It is very easy to understand, very well illustrated and I have found members of my family absorbed in its pages. It would, in my opinion, be an excellent study aid for young people and those studying biology etc. My favourite book so far as to finding out just how the human body works.

This is an amazing book if you are 1. Studying the Human Body or 2. If you are just generally interested in the Human Body and its functions and systems. The graphics are superb and give you a greater unerstanding of the body.
I highly recommend this book.
This Concise version makes it easy to pop in to your bag to read whilst travelling.

Can't believe the price of this book, what a bargain! It's brilliant - lovely pictures which are detailed but not overly so. I'd say this is a good book for a 1st year undergraduate uni student or a college student.

Even the size of the book is good - it's not big and bulky like all those other science books, it's a decent size to put into your bag without weighing it down.

Highly recommended!

Format: Paperback
I'm a physicist and wanted to have a clear picture of my body... without too much details
or shallow arguments.
I wanted a dictionary-like book about the Human body and its main functions.
This book is really what I needed.It's concise (both in size and content) and yet
pretty much complete and rigorous.
The quality of the paper is excellent.
I highly recommend it !

Back in 2001 Dorling Kindersley produced an excellent little book, Human Body: An Illustrated Guide To Every Part Of The Human Body And How It Works , a tad smaller than this 'The Concise Human Body' Book but 448 pages as opposed to the 320 of this. Both edited by Ann Baggaley, both Dorling Kindersley publications. I can only assume that this equally beautifully illustrated, but somewhat glossier, is regarded as the successor to the sadly out of print 2001.

Personally, I feel VERY sad that the earlier book is no longer available outside 'used' at a reasonable price. Had I not been in possession of the earlier book, I might have 5 starred this, it is indeed visually stunning (a hallmark of DKs house style) but the text is less clearly written and to some extent illustrations a little less clear - the earlier book imaginatively colours the various small bones in the hand and foot for example (like Netter, using colour to help imprint memory) And the earlier book flows better in the writing. This is a little drier.

It IS an excellent 'adjunct' book to a more intensive AP + P book (such as Tortorra) for students needing greater depth than these 'Introduction' books can provide, but it is not quite as brilliantly clear in its visuals and its descriptions as the earlier one. I would continue to recommend the 2001 book over this one as an AP + P Primer text to help unpick the depth books - as long as a reasonably priced, not too dreadfully mishandled copy exists.

This is a brilliant little book for anatomy students. It has a lot of information, in a perfect size for carrying to and from college. It is well written and concise, as you would expect from this publisher. The pictures are good, and much better than many of the larger books I have looked at. I am very happy with it, and would reccomend it for any student of anatomy or biology.

I bought this book to begin to learn more about the body and I am 100% happy with it. Looks fantastic and easy to follow, from the few pages I've flicked through it is very well laid out with brilliant uncomplicated diagrams.

I would also add that the physical size of the book is perfect for a commuter ( me ). I was expecting a large book like an World Atlas, but instead I got a compact, 6-7 inch book, perfect to put in a rucksack.

Can't wait to get started.
