Meet the Author

Elaine N. Marieb began her teaching career at Springfield College, where she taught A&P to physical education majors.  She then joined the faculty of the Biological Science Division of Holyoke Community College with a Ph.D. in zoology from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. As a result of her contact with her students at Holyoke Community College, many of whom were pursuing degrees in nursing, she developed a desire to better understand the relationship between the scientific study of the human body and the clinical aspects of nursing practice.  Still teaching full-time, Dr. Marieb pursued her nursing education, which culminated in a Master of Science degree with a clinical specialization in gerontology from the University of Massachusetts.  It is this experience, along with stories from the field–including those of former students now in health careers–that has informed the development of the unique perspective and accessibility for which her texts and laboratory manuals are known. 

Katja Hoehn is an instructor in the Department of Chemical, Biological, and Environmental Sciences at Mount Royal College in Calgary, Canada. She received her M.D. (with Distinction) from the University of Saskatchewan, and her Ph.D. in Pharmacology from Dalhousie University. Dr. Hoehn has been a contributor to several books and has written numerous research papers in Neuroscience and Pharmacology.  In 1991, the Dalhousie Medical Research Foundation presented her with the Max Forman (Jr.) Prize for excellence in medical research.  During her 11 years at Mount Royal College, Dr. Hoehn has received numerous awards including a PanCanadianEducational Technology Faculty Award (1999), a Teaching Excellence Award from the Student’s Association of Mount Royal College (2001), and the Mount Royal College Distinguished Faculty Teaching award (2004).  She is also actively involved in the Human Anatomy and Physiology Society (HAPS).

    Not Recommended

    This book is information overload for the undergrad taking anatomy and physiology for the first time. The smarter student would purchase questions on individual sections that you do not understand. There are some really good cheap nookbooks that do this already.

    A reviewer

    This book clarifyed many topics for me. The diagrams are excellent and each chapter has a set of questions with answers to help study/comprehend all of the information given. This book was very formal with explinations of organ systems and many other aspects of anatomy. I had to buy this book for an anatomy class that I was taking and this is one that I will definately keep for a while.
