Editorial Reviews

Sally A. Brozenec
This general anatomy and physiology textbook is an excellent overview of all body systems, including cellular function, a chemistry review and a comprehensive discussion of the immune system (often omitted in general anatomy and physiology texts). It is the fifth edition of this text. The purpose of this book is to introduce students to the structure and function of the human body for the cellular to the organ systems level. This book is targeted toward beginning level students in allied health fields, including physical therapy, medical technology, LPN, and nursing students. This clearly written book uses well-done illustrations and graphics to clarify the text. End-of-chapter summaries, review questions, appendixes, and a glossary make it reader-friendly and add to the usefulness of the text. This is a useful text for anyone teaching an introductory course in anatomy and physiology to students preparing for a career in the area of allied health. It is well organized and has many features that are important in the teaching of this science. For example, in anatomy, a picture truly is worth a thousand words. It would be a useful reference for professionals who may need to refresh their knowledge of the subject. Although it includes discussions of pathology that may be beyond the scope of this type of book, this does not detract from its value as a course text and a shelf reference.

Illustrated with hundreds of color drawings and photographs, this text introduces students to the structure and function of the human body. Marieb, an R.N. and Ph.D. who teaches at Edison Community College and Holyoke Community College, designed this book for students pursuing careers in the allied health fields but who may have limited previous exposure to the sciences. Sections discuss immunology and clinical advances based on current research, and throughout the book emphasizes career orientation through interviews with working professionals. Annotation c.

From The Critics
The seventh edition of this text features an enhanced art program, interviews with working professionals that demonstrate the importance of mastering basic anatomy and physiology in allied health careers, and a new CD-ROM with review activities and quizes. A Web site with learning activities and quizes is also new. The text retains its unintimidating writing style for students with limited background in the sciences. All chapters are self-contained, with beginning chapters on the human body, basic chemistry, and cells and tissues, and subsequent chapters on body systems. The author is affiliated with Holyoke Community College. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR

Meet the Author

For Elaine N. Marieb, taking the student's perspective into account has always been an integral part of her teaching style. Dr. Marieb began her teaching career at Springfield College, where she taught anatomy and physiology to physical education majors. She then joined the faculty of the Biological Science Division of Holyoke Community College after receiving her Ph.D. in zoology from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst.

While teaching at Holyoke Community College, where many of her students were pursuing nursing degrees, she developed a desire to better understand the relationship between the scientific study of the human body and the clinical aspects of the nursing practice. To that end, while continuing to teach full time, Dr. Marieb pursued her nursing education, which culminated in a Master of Science degree with a clinical specialization in gerontology from the University of Massachusetts. It is this experience, along with stories from the field—including those of former students, now in health careers—that has informed the development of the unique perspective and accessibility for which her texts and laboratory manuals are known.

In her ongoing commitment to students and her realization of the challenges they face, Dr. Marieb has given generously to provide opportunities for students to further their education. She contributes to the New Directions, New Careers Program at Holyoke Community College by providing several full-tuition scholarships each year for women returning to college after a hiatus or who are attending college for the first time and would otherwise be unable to continue with their studies without financial support. She funds the E. N. Marieb Science Research Awards at Mount Holyoke College, which promotes research by undergraduate science majors, and generously contributed to the University of Massachusetts at Amherst where she provided funding for reconstruction and instrumentation of a cutting-edge cytology research laboratory that bears her name.

In 1994, Dr. Marieb received the Benefactor Award from the National Council for Resource Development, American Association of Community Colleges, which recognizes her ongoing sponsorship of student scholarships, faculty teaching awards, and other academic contributions to Holyoke Community College. In May 2000, the science building at Holyoke Community College was named in her honor.

Additionally, while actively engaged as an author, Dr. Marieb serves as a consultant for the Benjamin Cummings Interactive Physiology¨ CD-ROM series, and is an active member of the Human Anatomy and Physiology Society (HAPS), the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), and Sigma Xi. Anatomy & Physiology, Second Edition is the latest expression of her commitment to student needs in their pursuit of the study of A&P.
