More About This Textbook


With complete coverage of all body systems, this highly popular book teaches anatomy using hundreds of detailed, high-quality drawings. Dr. Poritsky uses current nomenclature and sprinkles the book with etymologic cartoons. The 2nd Edition is vastly updated with many more new drawings.

• 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)

• 250 new anatomical plates
• More extensive coverage of cardiothoracic structures
• Enhanced coverage of upper and lower extremities
