I have bought many books all my life but never used ones as I was skeptical about used books but these few that I bought convinced me that it's worth it. However its not all used books that will looks as good as these but I suppose its worth a try.
I don't know about the quality of content as I bought them for my niece who is studying medicine.
The book is to be put in a few words: unpedagogic and messy. It may do well for someone who knows everything about this subject but for students who have just started their course in physiology at university, this is not helpful at all. They write about the different topics using obtuse and complicated sentences, and many times do not even care explain certain things by using statements such as "obviously", assuming someone who is new to the subject will know what they are talking about. To make matters worse, the topics is written and structured in a messy way, consistently referring the students to the next and next chapter. If it was a passing mention, then this is understanding but to spend a couple of paragraphs on one subject and then completely change the subject, that just makes it messy.
Apposed to other, even older books, the book has a very ilogical division into chapters, which makes it very hard to find what you are looking for. It also simply skips many parts of the "basics", which is essensially what medical student want!
So my advice is to buy Gayton & Hall instead, much easier to understand, excellent explations, simply a much better book!
