If you're interested in learning human anatomy for drawing or sculpting or to simply learn how beautifully constructed is our body then this book should be #1 in your list.

Richer's celebrated book is not necessarily an easy read but it does make for some very rewarding study. The front section of the book contains the discussion of the diagrams in the back, and is divided into sections according to layer (bones, muscles, veins etc.), which are themselves divided into sections according to body area (head, trunk, lower limbs etc.)There is also a further section on the body with weight shift. The anatomical diagrams are labelled in Latin and can look a little daunting a first, but could be unravelled and learnt more easily by someone who is prepared to learn artistic anatomy by copying some of the very beautiful diagrams. The book is concerned in the main with the ideal male body, but there is some reference to female anatomy in places. The age of the book explains the curious airbrushing of the genitals and absence of discussion on the anatomy of the pubic region. Nonetheless, a very comprhensive and beautifully illustrated book.

I only really use the end half of this book. The rest of it is full of writing which I'm sure is useful, but being an art student at Uni I don't often have time to read through that amount of text when pictures can describe it just as well.
