Martini (University of Hawaii) offers condensed explanations and less detailed discussions in this streamlined text/CD-ROM package adapted from his Fundamentals of Anatomy & Physiology, 6th ed. The streamlined text is 300 pages shorter than the parent text, while still appropriate for a two-semester course. Each set of chapters on a body system concludes with material that helps students integrate new content with other sections; boxed features deal with clinical topics of particular medical or social importance. The art program features color anatomical illustrations, photos, micro-images, and visual explanations. The CD-ROM contains animations and quizzes. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
