A disappointing book
on 21 January 2014
This book was a big disappointment for me. I was expecting more scientific and medical information on the function of the tissues and organs that make up the human body. Instead, most of each chapter was concerned with historical perspectives and trivia, which I personally found uninteresting. So much so that I gave up reading the book part way through the chapter on the head. I regret that I found it too boring to continue.
Obviously, others may find this treatment of anatomy of remarkable interest, but it wasn't my cup of tea. Nevertheless, as I should have researched the book more thoroughly before buying it (Kindle version), I've still rated it three stars because for its intended audience it is most likely a good read - it just wasn't for me.
