This is a medical student's dream. Perfect when you need to do some learning or revision, but can't get near the dissection room or a skeleton to check things out for yourself. Fabulous dissections perfectly photographed make for a great atlas.

I think this is possibly the best anatomy book I've seen. It has pictures of real cadavers and bones which is so much more useful than looking at a cartoon drawing where all the arteries are red, veins are blue etc. As a medical student myself, I would recommend this to anyone who's learning anatomy or to anyone fascinated with the human body-an investment for the future indeed!

Unlike many it has actual pictures of dissections - when you are looking at the cadaver its never the same trying to find a structure from a diagram / sketch. Nicely presented and organised well into different areas. Great clinical applications as well which a lot of courses nowadays focus on. Dont be put off by the price and buy one ... its an investment - will be useful throughout the clinical course as well.

This is a great book. It has very detailed PHOTOS of real prosections. This is a fantastic book to have with you in the dissecting room. The labels are numbered so that you can cover up the legend and test yourself - Great for revision.
Don't make this the only anatomy text you buy though. The book is not intended to be descriptive but makes up for it in it's brilliant detail. Shame that the section on the brain is quite brief.

Unbelievable dissections, photographed very clearly and labelled excellently.
I wouldn't go to a single anatomy session without looking in this atlas first - makes the dissection much clearer when you know what to expect and can see exactly what it will look like.

this book has got to be the best book available for the anatomy portion of any medical related degree. every structure is labelled and the photos of the prosections are exactly what you see in the disection room.

When starting the anthropology in module at uni we were informed this was an essential book to take into the bone lab. I can see why it shows all the relevant landmarks on the bones in amazing detail and makes learning the names of bones and comparison between the photos shown in the book and the actual bone much easier. It also shows all the muscle attachment sites and lists everything you could posssibly need to know about the anatomy. The pictures are large and extremely clear and while we have only used the sections relating to the bones the images of the dissections are also fascinating to look through even if only for wider reading purposes.
This should definitely be top of your list of books to buy if you're going to study forensic anthropology at university.

McMinns atlas is exactly what I find I need for this portion of my course - clear concise pictures to complement anatomy sessions. Although not required now I can see that the clinical notes found at the end of each chapter will be useful in the future and annotations throughout make it easier to understand. Personally, I didn't find the bonus CD of 3D rotatable anatomical models that useful, except for the extra tests which are always good. Otherwise, I don't think I can really fault the book. It is simple but detailed enough for my needs and doesn't weigh a ton like some of the others!

Although no book could ever replace the amazing resouce that is dissection where you can learn real anatomy in 3D, this book has great pictures of prosections that will help you with revision. I like that everything is labelled with numbers as you can cover up the answers and test yourself on the different stuctures.

If you are studdying anatomy then this book is good, but if your just interested in the body it's amazing. It is full of photo's taking you into the body and from lots of different angles making it easier to see how it works, although not a great reasourse for assignments still a great read.
