I kept renewing the book for 3 months and decided to purchase it! And I'm not big on buying books.....recommendation enough I think.
The book is so in depth on everything you would want to know about how fascinating our bodies are. As well as in depth knowledge, the illustrations are truly amazing with use of drawings, CT images, MRI images, and any other way to show parts of our insides! The book is a good size as well which adds to pin sharpness of the images and gives the reader a good idea of what we look like and how our bodies work. In all if you are interested in anatomy get this book - you can't go wrong. It is also nice there is a bit at the beginnning which uses Dr Robert's knowlegde of anthropology, in giving readers an insight of human evolution. Fantastic.
