All medical and student nurses should get a copy of this book; it explains body systems in great detail. I passed two human biology exams by reading this book alone. However, this book is not for the faint hearted, as it contains many different sections. You should really read a basic human biology book before attempting to read this one, as it really does go into great depth and you need some level of knowledge and understanding before trying to get to grips with it.

This is a well written book. It gives a good introduction to anatomy and physiology. However, as a medical student I found that there is not enough details either for anatomy or physiology. It would probably be helpful in year one semester one.
I bought this book because I liked how it is written and I liked the pictures and diagrams. However I ended up buying separate anatomy book (Moore full size *****) and separate physiology book.
