From The CriticsReviewer: Michael F. Dauzvardis, PhD (Loyola University Medical Center)
Description: This anatomy text consists of line drawings, most of which are accurate anatomical renderings, and diagrammatic illustrations. It is designed to be used in conjunction with the sister book The Human Anatomy Color Atlas and Text.
Purpose: This book represents a valuable self-test aid designed to help students recognize and retain specific anatomical relationships. As a teaching tool, this work more than meets its objectives.
Audience: The authors, a collection of international authorities on anatomy and medicine, have aimed this text toward graduate and postgraduate students of anatomy and related health sciences. Residents and medical practitioners, especially those in the fields of surgery or radiology, would also find this work useful for review.
Features: Relying almost exclusively on illustrations to enhance its teaching potential, the book is adequately equipped with more than 150 anatomically accurate drawings. These line drawings, traced from photos taken from the original atlas, are numbered and keyed to an answer list found at the rear of the book.
Assessment: Active participation in the education process assists memory and subsequent understanding. By encouraging the student to identify and color detailed drawings, this coloring book succeeds in driving home a plethora of anatomical concepts. The only shortcoming of any potential consequence is the lack of cross referencing between the drawings and the actual color photos in the color atlas upon which the coloring book was based. Nevertheless, the coloring book can stand on its own as a very useful tool for understanding the complexities of human anatomy.
