Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: John A. McNulty, PhD (Loyola University Medical Center)
Description: The fourth edition of this anatomy atlas continues its format of combining illustrations by Leon Schlossberg with text authored by the faculty at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.
Purpose: It provides a basic guide to the structure and function of anatomical systems and specialized organs.
Audience: This atlas is aimed at students who are in the initial phases of education in the health sciences and who need a basic understanding of the area.
Features: The book comprises 29 chapters, each containing one or more pages of text followed by one or more illustrations. Some chapters provide basic descriptions of whole systems (e.g., skeletal, circulatory, lymphatic, endocrine systems) while other chapters concentrate on either specific organs (e.g., heart, lungs, liver) or anatomical regions (e.g., mediastinum). This edition includes new descriptions of the breast, prostate, liver, and a laparoscopic view of abdominal anatomy. A large anatomical display of a man was also included to emphasize areas of clinical interest. The color illustration is a frontal section and is accompanied by two labeled black-and-white illustrations.
Assessment: The atlas would serve any student who is seeking an introduction to anatomy. Other students may wish to refer to parts of the atlas for review. The chapters on the gastrointestinal tract and the menstrual cycle would be particularly useful in this regard.
Biology Teacher
Schlossberg's work gives new meaning to the word illustration... An excellent basic reference for functional anatomy.
Science News
Provides an easily understood introduction to the inner workings of the human body. With emphasis on function as well as structure, the beautifully illustrated guide maps anatomical systems and organs.
Los Angeles Times
Originally composed for medical students, this thorough reference guide is basic enough to help lay readers understand how human organs work and what happens when they don't. Unlocking vertebrae and cutting off layers of skin, the numerous color illustrations are anything but pretty, but they capture, with detail rare in introductory works, the interconnecting functions that help the human body survive.
Science Books and Films
The illustrations—most in color—are scientifically accurate and artistically beautiful... The text is uniformly of high quality.
Nursing Times
The artwork is first-class... A book which anyone with an interest in anatomy would be pleased to own.
