Overview

This completely new addition to the Gray's Anatomy family is specifically tailored to meet the needs of today's anatomy students. A team of authors with a wealth of diverse teaching and clinical experience have carefully crafted the book to efficiently cover the information taught in contemporary anatomy courses. A user-friendly format, a regional organization, and outstanding artwork make mastering anatomy remarkably easy. Unique coverage of surface anatomy, correlative diagnostic images, and clinical case studies demonstrate practical applications of anatomical concepts. STUDENT CONSULT offers convenient and versatile online access to the book's content plus interactive exercises and more. And, an international advisory board, comprised of more than 100 anatomy instructors, ensures that the material is accurate, up to date, and easy to use.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Gray's Anatomy for students...comes with colourful diagrams, and...readable text. The book is separated by region, and at the end of each chapter is surface anatomy and a few clinical cases. Scattered around the book are boxes entitled 'In the Clinic', which gives useful information like locating pulses... A good clinical focus.
MAD magazine, the official journal of Barts and The London Students'Association

An easy to understand anatomy text book, with clear use of terminology and explanatory diagrams which is every medical students dream, and this can be found within the snazzy coverings of Gray's Anatomy for Student's. The strongest feature of this book is quite simply the way it's been written. This is a brilliant resource for medical students as the text takes the reader from the basics slowly but then reaches the more detailed anatomy. The diagrams are excellent. Gray's Anatomy for Student's is excellent. It is well laid out, clear, with good use of colour and some really nice features. It is a great book that should be an essential on every medical students reading list, as it does make learning anatomy feel easy. Edinburgh Medics, a Res Medica supplement courtesy of the Royal Medical Society, July 2005

This textbook provides a different approach to the introduction and detailed study of human anatomy accompanied by a collection of detailed and very informative illustrations. Faculty teaching anatomy in different health related disciplines looking for alternatives to the current standard textbooks should seriously consider this new edition.
Clinical Anatomy

The editors are to be applauded for these particularly useful features as many anatomy books oftenneglect function and how many regions of the body, such asthe thorax and abdomen, are related. Where relevant,embryology is also covered.
The clinical relevance of topographical anatomy, togetherwith surface anatomy, is highlighted throughout. At theend of each chapter there are clinical scenarios and tenshort questions demonstrating clinical applications of anatomy, allowing the readers to test and apply their knowledge.

From The Critics
Reviewer: Donald Fletcher, PhD (The Brody School of Medicine at East Carolina University)
Description: This book provides a thorough description of human gross anatomy but is also very student friendly. The strength of the book is the high quality of the colorful and unique illustrations.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a reference source for human anatomy that can be used in different curriculum paradigms and by different groups of health professional students. This sort of book has been sorely needed since many books of human anatomy have been too specialized to be used by more than one or two student populations. This book has met the authors' objectives.
Audience: According to the authors, this book is written for introductory anatomy at the graduate level, e.g., first year medical or physical therapy students. I concur, with the small caveat that it may be not meet all the needs of a more extensive human anatomy course (one that is taught over two semesters). I am unaware of Dr. Mitchell's credentials but very familiar with those of Drs. Drake and Vogl. Both of these individuals are well known for their expertise in anatomy education and, thus, are extremely credible authors.
Features: The book covers human gross anatomy in terms of regions, e.g., back or upper limb, rather than systems. The sequence of regions is one that is used by numerous anatomy courses. Each chapter begins with an overview section, devotes most of the chapter to a specific description of the region, and ends with surface anatomy and clinical cases/study questions. The best features are the superlative drawings and the straightforward text. The drawings are colorful, clear, and sufficiently labeled. I especially like the drawings that are less traditional, such as those viewed from an oblique orientation or those of an "exploded" skull showing the constituent parts. The text is easy to understand and emphasizes major concepts and points (instead of minutiae). The only shortcomings I really noticed are the placement of the Key Features section at the beginning of each chapter and the level of difficulty of the clinical cases and study questions. The Key Features are, in effect, a summary that would be better placed at the end of the chapter; at the beginning, these may not make much sense unless the student has perused much of the chapter. Many of the clinical cases and student questions are more appropriate for either someone who has read/learned several chapters in the book (they need information from more than one chapter to correctly answer the question) or strictly a medical or physician assistant student. I do not see the typical physical therapy student being able to answer many of these questions.
Assessment: I can tell that considerable effort has been put into this book by the authors, and this is responsible for the overall high quality of the book. It will be a very useful addition to anatomy education and benefit both student and teacher. As a course director of gross anatomy, I feel this book enables one to glean the fundamental tenets of anatomy without being overwhelmed. It is not as comprehensive as Clinically Oriented Anatomy, 5th edition, by Moore and Dalley (Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2006) or Hollinshead's Textbook of Anatomy, 5th edition, by Rosse and Gaddum-Rosse (Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 1997), but it can serve as a valuable resource for introductory human anatomy.
