Overview

This interactive atlas is an expansion of the leg section of Dr. Poritsky's "Anatomy to Color and Study" with the inclusion of many more drawings. The book's purpose is to supplement and reinforce the student's knowledge of foot and lower extremity anatomy by the coloring and labeling of key structures. Examples are given to help describe muscles in terms of their origin, insertion, action, and innervation. There are a total of 83 drawings depicting various aspects of the thigh, knee, tibia, fibula, ankle, and foot.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Sandra E. Inouye, PhD (Midwestern University)
Description: This is a coloring book of detailed lower extremity anatomy. It has numerous drawings from the Hand Atlas of Clinical Anatomy by Eycleshymer and Jones, supplemented with additional figures by Cheryl Owens and the author, Ray Poritsky.
Purpose: The book is designed to help students learn lower limb anatomy. It also serves as a gross anatomy review for students. The book meets the author's objectives, for the most part.
Audience: According to the author, the book is written for students in gross anatomy. In my opinion, the book is written primarily for graduate students of medicine or podiatry; the detail in the book is beyond most undergraduate anatomy courses. The author is credible; he is an emeritus professor in the Department of Anatomy at Case Western Reserve University.
Features: The book is a series of illustrations of lower extremity anatomy. The illustrations mainly cover bones, origins and insertions of muscles, muscles, nerves, vessels, and ligaments. The best feature is the collection of beautiful illustrations by Eycleshymer and Jones. The additional illustrations by the author are not as clear as those by Eycleshymer and Jones; the stippling makes it difficult to delineate the structures in the figures. For those who prefer accuracy, there are several disconcerting errors in the labeling of the figures. For example, on page 1, the right lower extremity is called "lower leg"; on page 2, the adductor longus is labeled "adductor magnus"; and on page 5, the medial meniscus is labeled "medial lemniscus." and "longus" is left off of the label for "tendons of extensor digitorum." Also, if the author wishes for the book to be a learning tool, there should be more text to accompany the illustrations.
Assessment: The book is mediocre to good in its quality. The figures from Eycleshymer and Jones are beautiful, but the additional figures by the author are not of the same quality. This book is very detailed in its treatment of lower extremity anatomy, but there is very little accompanying text; this lack makes the book more appropriate for reviewing lower limb anatomy than for learning the anatomy for the first time. There are also errors in the book in the labeling of the figures. Although the author is not specific about the type of students at whom this book is aimed, the detailed lower extremity anatomy in this text is appropriate for medical, physical therapy, and podiatric students taking gross anatomy. One popular book that this can be compared with is Anatomy Coloring Book (Addison-Wesley, 2001) by Kapit and Elson. Although the illustrations in that book are not as nice as those in the Poritsky, it is a popular book among students. The main difference between the books is Anatomy Coloring Book has ample summary text accompanying the figures on each page. Students find the text plus the coloring of structures to be useful in helping them to remember anatomical structures. For about the same price, Anatomy Coloring Book reviews the entire body and includes a bibliography, appendices, glossary, and index. In comparison, this book does not have most of these features. If one is a student of gross anatomy, this text is probably not an appropriate learning tool and it is not complete in and of itself for an entire gross anatomy course. However, if one wants a detailed coloring book reviewing just lower extremity anatomy, then it is more than adequate.
