    A Home Run

    I teach this class at a local college, and I recommend this book as an adjunct to the text. A simplified, condensed, easy reading way to ingest some knowledge.

    I love this book! It's a great introduction to physiology and anatomy. I have learned so much, and it's written in a way most can understand without being a science-major. Great!! :)

    rip off

    I purchased this e-book because it said there were color plates in the middle like the book. There aren't. I feel I was misled and wasted my money. Should have just bought the book. I only gave one star because I couldn't give no stars.
