Anthony's Textbook of Anatomy & Physiology

A thorough introductory text on human form and function, this text presents a large, complex body of scientific knowledge in an easily understood, straightforward writing style. Focusing on concepts rather than descriptions, the text uses a "big picture" theme of body function and also explains the body's homeostatic regulation.
