The quality of the illustrations and diagrams within this book are excellent and greatly improve the understanding of how parts of the body are put together, then how they work.
The organisation of the text is equally helpful and a clear structure together with lists show how eg tissues are distributed around the body.
If you're coming at anatomy from scratch, this may not be basic enough to ensure you get it all. However, as a support to academic study to explain some of the concepts or structures in a different way, I'd highly recommend.

A fantastic source of information, whether you are a health professional or student. The rolls Royce of A&P books.

As a first year dental student, following the basic medical science curriculum at Liverpool, I have found this book to be an invaluable resource, yes it has its inaccuracies in places and perhaps isn't as detailed as core texts on anatomy and physiology but for any first year dental or medical student this book is pitched at exactly the right level. I would advise anyone who uses this book to also use a core anatomy text alongside it as at times it does lack information with regards to the relationships between organs and vessels, giving you the anatomy of the structures themselves but not really demonstrating their orientation to surrounding tissues. This book provides, as mentioned, an invaluable resource for any first year dental or medical student, providing information on the anatomy, physiology, histology and embryology of all the systems.

This was compulsory purchase as it is a set text for my course but it is clear, comprehensive and well laid out. There are plenty of explanatory diagrams. It's likely to be a book I retain after my studies are completed. It probably wouldn't be so useful to you if you were thinking of using it to acquire the basics of anatomy & physiology, but it's brilliant otherwise.

Wow great!

Contains NEARLY everything I need for my A&P module for sports studies degree. I got another free book with it too, showing a brief atlas of the skeleton, surface anatomy and medial images. Theres just some basics its missing but not much to be honest. Also it is a good workout for the arms when your reading it!

Very detailed, all in colour, comparatively cheap for what it is and has an online website with learning aids such as written exercises and quizzes (this effectively eliminates the need for the companion book). A must have and a keeper for future reference. If you buy nothing else for A&P, get this book!

This book is definitely the best anatomy and physiology book I've owned. I wish I had it in my first year of uni. I used it as a student and as a practicing nutritionist and it was always invaluable.

This book helped me so much in college and will take me through to university. I found it very detailed but easy to understand. A must have but I would get others books as well if you want a less detailed explanation at first.

this book is a bit more advance and would suit those who already have a basic understanding of A&P, but I enjoy using it along side Ross and Wilson text, together they make a great combination for me

Even thought it's not the latest edition, it still catered for all my course needs (Biological sciences). It goes into enough detail but portrays is in an easily accessible way... perfect really.
