Overview

Anatomy Recall, Second Edition is a concise, affordable, pocket-sized review of the fundamentals of human anatomy. As part of the popular Recall Series, it utilizes a two-column, question-and-answer format that facilitates quick learning of human anatomic facts through repetition.

While not intended as a comprehensive anatomy reference, Anatomy Recall highlights the most important anatomic principles, which are complemented by a wealth of illustrations and anatomic correlations to clinical problems. It is an ideal study guide for medical students in their pre-clinical coursework, undergraduate or nursing anatomy study, clinical rotations, and board review.

New to this Edition:

  • Updated by expert authors, including anatomists, medical students, and surgeons
  • Expanded coverage now includes embryology highlights, summarizing the key anatomic principles of human embryology
  • Clinical Pearls emphasize important clinical correlations to anatomic principles
  • Surgical Anatomy Pearls help third- and fourth-year medical students to prepare quickly for the most common intraoperative anatomy questions
  • Power Review sections help focus last-minute review of the most commonly tested anatomy points
  • Numerous effective illustrations allow correlation of factual information with key anatomical relationships

Anatomy Recall, Second Edition has everything you need for fast learning and recall—and nothing you don't. You won't find a better, more efficient or effective way to master the basics of anatomy.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: David W. Brzezinski, MD (University of Michigan Medical School)
Description: This question-and-answer formatted anatomy book is aimed at professional students seeking to understand the basics of anatomy without succumbing to the sheer volume of material that is typical of most medical gross anatomy texts. It takes a regional approach and engages students in an active manner by highlighting the most important anatomic points in a very practical way. The first edition was published in 2000.
Purpose: The purpose is to distill the most important anatomic concepts into manageable pieces for professional students in an engaging format. Speaking as a former medical student and as a current gross anatomy instructor, this book is much needed. It, indeed, makes anatomy accessible to the professional student, and it does so in a memorable manner.
Audience: The book is aimed primarily at professional students during both the basic science and clinical years. Since most of the authors have experienced medical school first-hand, their background and understanding are second to none. The combination of basic science and clinical pearls is well balanced, accurate, and engaging.
Features: The most important concepts of medical gross anatomy are outlined in a regional and question-and-answer approach. The book is very complete and introduces students to important terminology at every relevant point. Perhaps the greatest strength of the book is its complete yet concise style. It manages to accurately cover a very broad and complex field of study while limiting its scope to the most important and clinically relevant aspects. Of particular value are the clinical pearls which are inserted at relevant points in the text. Such pearls not only serve to teach students clinical concepts, they also reinforce the basic anatomy in a memorable way. The valuable embryology section is located toward the end of the book. However, it could be broader in scope, and it could definitely benefit from additional figures as points of illustration. That being said, the remainder of the book would also benefit from a few more strategically placed illustrations.
Assessment: This excellent book will provide students with a valuable tool to solidify their anatomic knowledge. While not intended as a reference, it excels as a complete, concise, and accurate high-yield source of anatomy material. I found the book amazingly manageable for students and of appropriate depth. It is extremely practical for professional students and it can be used all the way through their residency (and beyond). I highly recommend it for any professional student, and only wish that I had such a valuable resource when I was a medical student. It should find its way into many a white coat pocket!

Meet the Author

Christopher Moore
Christopher Moore
With a body of work that boasts some of the most outlandish plots and outrageous characters ever to make it onto the printed page, Christopher Moore is rapidly making a name for himself as the clown prince of contemporary fiction. It may be a dirty job, but Moore is more than up to the task.

Biography

A 100-year-old ex-seminarian and a demon set off together on a psychotic road trip...

Christ's wisecracking childhood pal is brought back from the dead to chronicle the Messiah's "missing years"...

A mild-mannered thrift shop owner takes a job harvesting souls for the Grim Reaper...

Whence come these wonderfully weird scenarios? From the fertile imagination of Christopher Moore, a cheerfully demented writer whose absurdist fiction has earned him comparisons to master satirists like Kurt Vonnegut, Terry Pratchett, and Douglas Adams.

Ever since his ingenious debut, 1992's Practical Demonkeeping, Moore has attracted an avid cult following. But, over the years, as his stories have become more multi-dimensional and his characters more morally complex, his fan base has expanded to include legions of enthusiastic general readers and appreciative critics.

Asked where his colorful characters come from, Moore points to his checkered job resume. Before becoming a writer, he worked at various times as a grocery clerk, an insurance broker, a waiter, a roofer, a photographer, and a DJ -- experiences he has mined for a veritable rogue's gallery of unforgettable fictional creations. Moreover, to the delight of hardcore fans, characters from one novel often resurface in another. For example, the lovesick teen vampires introduced in 1995's Bloodsucking Fiends are revived (literally) for the 2007 sequel You Suck -- which also incorporates plot points from 2006's A Dirty Job.

For a writer of satirical fantasy, Moore is a surprisingly scrupulous researcher. In pursuit of realistic details to ground his fiction, he has been known to immerse himself in marine biology, death rituals, Biblical scholarship, and Goth culture. He has been dubbed "the thinking man's Dave Barry" by none other than The Onion, a publication with a particular appreciation of smart humor.

As for story ideas, Moore elaborates on his website: "Usually [they come] from something I read. It could be a single sentence in a magazine article that kicks off a whole book. Ideas are cheap and easy. Telling a good story once you get an idea is hard." Perhaps. But, to judge from his continued presence on the bestseller lists, Chris Moore appears to have mastered the art.

Good To Know

In researching his wild tales, Moore has done everything from taking excursions to the South Pacific to diving with whales. So what is left for the author to tackle? He says he'd like to try riding an elephant.

One of the most memorably weird moments in Moore's body of work is no fictional invention. The scene in Bloodsucking Fiendswhere the late-night crew of a grocery store bowls with frozen turkeys is based on Moore's own experiences bowling with frozen turkeys while working the late shift at a grocery store.
