Overview

Not just another book on circulatory system physiology, this book includes 10 "lectures" that are presented in a light, entertaining style, with each lecture building on the previous one—making it easy for the reader to comprehend the vastly complicated functions of the circulatory system.

The author succeeds in telling a clear, interesting story. The length of the story has intentionally been kept short; it is neither exhaustively complete nor over-simplified. The story is enriched by details about basic biologic mechanisms and clever ways nature has solved a problem or achieved a result.

This book will be a tremendous resource for the student of health science to help him or her understand and organize the topic; the established professional will appreciate the clarity and simplicity of the basic information that is sometimes dimmed by a plethora of details; and the general reader will satisfy his or her curiosity about the circulatory system and how it sustains life.
