Key Features

  • Simple and clear coverage of gross anatomy of the human body
  • Uses current nomenclature for anatomic terminology
  • Extensive labeling of structures and brief descriptive text
  • Seven body regions are depicted with 460 anatomical drawings
  • The reader identifies, labels, and colors each section, thereby learning or reinforcing anatomic knowledge and aiding the memory
  • The anatomist-artist author has a flair for creating clear and interesting anatomical depictions
  • Witty cartoons describe word origins in humorous and memorable fashion (anatomic terms are often cumbersome and somewhat complex, making them difficult to remember)
