A brilliant book, easy to understand and follow. Very detailed but also very well organised and well explained. It includes a lot of useful and relevant information and provides extensive coverage of physiology in a concise way. It includes everything essential and is good for both beginners and also when you advance to higher levels of study. The book is good for all years of a degree and covers a large amount of what you need between these years in the correct level of detail.

Very good book in terms of content, diagrams, and high level of detail suited especially well for my purpose - I am a student studying biomedical science, where a comprehensive and interlinking understanding on a small to large scale is important. However, I gave only 4 stars because I downloaded the Kindle edition. Since I use this book for further reading and for references, and these are referenced by my lecturers in pages (referring to the hard copies of the books). The "pages" on Kindles are referred to as Locations and are completely unmatched to the pages of the hard copy version. I have looked this up and Kindles books are actually capable of showing page numbers, however, the publisher needs to include them. So this is probably a problem with the publisher and not Amazon itself.
Otherwise, useful and great book! For me, the major convenience of not having to carry a hefty book around was slightly tinged by the minor inconvenience of the lack of inclusion of hard copy versions of page numbers

This truly is a whale of a book..... I read that in someone else's review, but it really goes over physiology. It seems to take it a step further in explanation.

As a physiology student, it gives me all the detail needed plus more. However it is very wordy and round-about... the diagrams are very useful. So far, best reference physiology book on the market for me.

Absolutely beautiful book.. I had proclaimed guyton the ultimate physiology text..until I purchased this! Excellent coverage of all aspects of physiology.. As well as clinical concepts. Moreover this text goes more into the biochemical side as well, which makes it ideal for biology/ science students as well as medics.

Haven't read to much of the book yet, BUT it would have been nice as the publisher is charging over £35 for the electronic version of this book if they had taken the time to make sure that tables and diagrams display correctly.
I am reading this in the kindle app on an ipad, the tables in the section on blood are useless because they can't be read.

This book is a must for every medical student. Everything is so clearly explained, with drawings that summarize the main ideas, and all the systems are presented in detail, so that you can understand all the mechanisms.
Also, it arrived in time and in perfect condition.
It was a very good choice.

Use this book all of the time for uni, it's one of the recommended texts. Having the online student consult access is great, no one wants to carry this around, it's so heavy!!
