Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Erin Rae Leslie, PhD (Midwestern University)
Description: This is the 13th edition of the classic anatomy atlas first published by J.C.B. Grant in 1943. The 12th edition was published in 2009.
Purpose: This goal is to update the historic excellence of this atlas to appeal to today's students. This edition improves upon the previous one by updating and improving figure legends and tables, reorganizing some figures, updating the original realistic cadaver illustrations with more vibrant colors, and adding more than 100 new figures. The updates are primarily aesthetic changes that are not critical for the content or comprehension.
Audience: This atlas is appropriate for undergraduate, graduate, and health science students, and is a reliable reference for professionals.
Features: It presents full-color illustrations of cadaveric dissections and complementary schematic diagrams with descriptive tables and figure legends. Clinical correlations are highlighted in blue text, an improvement over the blue boxes of earlier editions. The addition of subregion titles to the page headers is especially useful for navigating through the book. This edition includes access to thePoint website, which includes the eBook, interactive question bank, interactive atlas, selected video clips from Acland's Video Atlas of Human Anatomy, and downloadable full-color illustrations. The ethnic diversity of the models seems to be improved in this edition, but male models continue to outnumber female models nearly 3:1. The book would benefit from updated descriptions of the clitoris and clinical comments on pelvic floor injury due to childbirth and the potential for pelvic organ prolapse.
Assessment: This is an updated and modernized edition of a classic anatomy atlas that is appropriate for all students in the health sciences. The aesthetic changes to this edition are pleasing and make the tables and text easier to read, but are not critical updates to the underlying content. This atlas is easier to use and a better general study tool than other popular atlases, including Netter's Atlas of Anatomy, 5th edition (Elsevier, 2011), Atlas of Anatomy, 2nd edition, Gilroy et al. (Thieme, 2012), and Color Atlas of Anatomy: A Photographic Study of the Human Body, 7th edition, Rohen et al. (Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2011), because it includes detailed figure legends and supporting tables. It also provides clinical comments that are lacking or minimal in other atlases.
