I had to update my A&P text for a project I was working on. I had the 8th edition of Marieb, which was published in 2007. I was going back through my document and updating citations, and found that a lot of the excellent detail I found in the 2007 version had been deleted in the 2011 version! This used to be one of the best A&P texts out there....not anymore. Still has great graphics, but is now TOO general and simple.
