5.0 out of 5 stars Is this the best anatomy textbook ever?, 12 Dec 2009
By

(REAL NAME)   
Drs. Henry Gray and H.V. Carter published the first edition of this iconic textbook in 1858, and each generation of its readership gets a revisited and updated version of Gray's Anatomy, together with all recent development in the field of human anatomy. This publication celebrates the 150th anniversary, including state-of-the-art coverage of important new areas such as functional neuro-imaging, embryogenesis and biomechanics. The editor, Susan Standring PhD, DSc, Emeritus Professor of Anatomy, Head of Anatomy and Human Sciences, King's College London, London, uses a comprehensively revamped, lavish full-colour illustrations to enhance the material as well as providing convenient access to the entire contents online, with downloadable illustrations. The new 40th Edition sets a standard for accuracy, clarity, and clinical relevance. It is for so many the first textbook to rely on when you want to be sure about any anatomical matters.

The publishers suggest that within the various chapters there's expanded clinical discussion included to emphasize relevant clinical considerations. Having read many of the chapters that cover my own personal areas of interest, I would suggest that Gray's Anatomy is not sought after as a differential diagnosis tool or one to provide relevant red or yellow flag indicators that may affect clinical decisions. Rather, it's an unrivalled provider of anatomically precise facts upon which the reader can add from other sources. There are many excellent commentators of clinical analysis that provide this type of specific detail; those purchasing Gray's don't essentially value their copy for providing clinical diagnosis.

The new edition of Gray's Anatomy has been edited by a highly regarded group of clinicians and anatomists, with support from hundreds of contributors and specialist reviewers worldwide. The publishers have in presenting the material in this way, ensured the most detailed and dependable coverage of anatomy available anywhere, including in-depth information on normal biological variation. The format of the information presented is region based, and with all relevant material on each body area together in one place, makes for easy clinical reference

The reader gets enhanced and updated artwork throughout the text's 2,000 images that utilise full colour and provide a consistent, coherent view of every anatomical detail. It provides every practitioner with the best, most clinically helpful, visual understanding of the subject available. The two hundred completely new radiologic, CT, MR, and other imaging studies capture all the anatomical detail that need to be recognized by primary care practitioners.

Online access via Expert Consult allows you to reference the book's complete contents from any computer, fully searchable, and download thousands of detailed anatomical illustrations.

This lavish textbook retains its perceived authority, which stems from its earlier editions, being both aesthetically almost a work of art as well as being an extra-ordinary learning resource.

It was a pleasure to review this exceptional and unique textbook.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best textbook to study Anatomy!, 18 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
What can we say about Gray's Anatomy?
Well, when we take it in our hands we can say "Oh, it's really heavy!", but, when we open it, we must say "Ohhh, it's so perfect!".
The illustrations are wonderful, the text is very clear and complete and the way that everything is presented is amazing!
I think it could be named: "The Gray's Bible of Anatomy"...
If you study Medicine, or even If you want to learn something about the Human Anatomy, it's mandatory to own the "Gray's Anatomy"!

5.0 out of 5 stars Epic book, 9 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Gray's Anatomy: The Anatomical Basis of Clinical Practice (Kindle Edition)
slightly inferior to predecessors but vastly superior to everything else in the market so far.
Another plus is reliability of information provided.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb book for doctors, 17 April 2011

After years in wards, update and refresh is needed. Basic books from the medical school years are not enough and they seem very simple. From the physician point of view, Gray's is a consistent superb reference for studying anatomy again. Specially, the scope of anatomy is different from the french static anatomy which We studied: more flexible, from the cell to members.
