    Stunning visualizations of the human body - highly recommended

    I've looked at a number of anatomy books over the years, and have always found it very challenging to visualize how the muscles, tendons, and bones all fit together in space. As a serious Pilates student, I want to be able to understand anatomy to deepen my practice. This book completely exceeded my expectations. I can finally visualize how my body is put together! The images are crisp, clear, detailed, and aesthetically pleasing. There are countless large format double-page spreads showing breathtaking detailed areas of the body. For each area of the body, multiple images are provided showing how everything layers and interconnects including bones, muscles, tendons, nerves, and blood vessels. In addition to anatomy, the book covers how each aspect of the body works including: - Skin, hair and nails - Musculoskeletal system - Nervous system - Respiratory system - Cardiovascular system - Lymphatic and immune system - Digestive system - Urinary system - Reproductive system - Endocrine system In addition it covers the human lifecycle, and diseases and disorders. It is very inspiring to see just what a miracle the human body is. I would recommend this book to students and teachers, as well as anyone interested to know more about the body.

    more from this reviewer

    Glad to see that DK finally realized to have one complete book and DVD on all of this.

    Still wished that they had waited a few more years of waiting to have this. Instead of doing two separate (Body 2007 and Brain 2009) books and DVDs on all of this. As for me went ahead and got the complete book because its way easier to keep track and etc along those. As for the separate books I donated them to one of the local hospitals in my area medical library.
