Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Steven K. Hamick, BIS, RCP, RRT (William Beaumont Hospitals)
Description: This is the ninth edition of an anatomy and physiology book last published in 2010. The publisher offers an online integrated teaching and learning tool for this edition for an additional fee.
Purpose: It is designed as a primary textbook for human anatomy and physiology or human biology courses. It boasts additional tools to make the learning experience more successful. Given the years of collaboration with students to determine how best to present the material, the authors' objectives have been met.
Audience: The book is geared towards students new to anatomy and physiology as well as biology. It is also geared for instructors as there are numerous tools on the publisher site to help them make a greater impact with the material.
Features: Each of the 24 chapters begins with an introduction and is divided into sections, each of which has its own objective, bolded terminology with pronunciation, and Checkpoint for review. Numerous images, figures, tables, exhibits, thought-provoking questions, and sections such as Common Disorders and Clinical Connections appear throughout to help readers clarify key points. Chapters end with medical terminology and conditions, a chapter review, a self-quiz, and critical thinking applications. There are no shortcomings with this book — it is very easy to read and understand with a plethora of learning tools to reinforce chapter content.
Assessment: The authors have done a superb job revising this classic. This is a highly recommended textbook for entry level anatomy and physiology or biology courses.

Meet the Author

Gerard J. Tortora is Professor of Biology and former coordinator at Bergen Community College in Paramus, New Jersey, where he teaches human anatomy and physiology as well as microbiology. He received his bachelor's degree in biology from Fairleigh Dickinson University and his master's degree in science education from Montclair State College. He is a member of many professional organizations, such as the Human Anatomy and Physiology Society (HAPS), the American Society of Microbiology (ASM), American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAS), National Education Association (NEA), and the Metropolitan Association of College and University Biologists (MACUB).

Above all, Jerry is devoted to his students and their aspirations. In recognition of this commitment, Jerry was the recipient of MACUB's 1992 President's Memorial Award. In 1996, he received a National Institute for Staff and Organizational Development (NISOD) excellence award from the University of Te4xas and was selected to represent Bergen Community College in a campaign to increase awareness of the contributions of community colleges to higher education. Jerry is the author of several best-selling science textbooks and laboratory manuals, a calling that often requires an additional 40 hours per week beyond his teaching responsibilities. Nevertheless, eh still makes time for four or five weekly aerobic workouts that include biking and running. he also enjoys attending college basketball and professional hockey games and performances at the Metropolitan Opera House.

Bryan Derrickson is Professor of biology at Valencia community College in Orlando, Florida, where he teaches human anatomy and physiology as well as general biology and human sexuality. He received his bachelor's degree in biology from Morehouse college and his Ph.D. in Cell Biology from Duke University. Bryan's study at Duke was in the Physiology Division within the Department of Cell Biology, so while his degree is in Cell Biology his training focused on physiology. At Valencia, he frequently serves on faculty hiring committees. He has served as a member of the Faculty Senate, which is the governing body of the college and as a member of the Faculty Academy committee (now called the Teaching and Learning Academy), which sets the standards for the acquisition of tenure by faculty members. Nationally, he is a member of the Human Anatomy and Physiology Society (HAPS) and the National Association of Biology Teachers (NABT).

Bryan has always wanted to teach. Inspired by several biology professors while in college, he decided to pursue physiology with an eye to teaching at the college level. He is completely dedicated to the success of his students. He particularly enjoys the challenges of his diverse student population, in terms of their age, ethnicity, and academic ability, and finds being able to teach all of them, despite their differences, a rewarding experience. His students continually recognize Bryan's efforts and care by nominating him for a campus award known as the "Valencia Professor Who Makes Valencia A Better Place to Start." Bryan has received this award three times in the past six years.
