Overview

In this completely new anatomy atlas by the world-famous writer-illustrator team of June, Paul, and John Melloni and Ida Dox, students at all levels in all healthcare fields can now get quickly and exactly the help they need to review, comprehend, and memorize anatomic details about arteries, bones, muscles, nerves, veins, and ligaments. The book includes a careful balance of concise descriptive text and single-concept color illustrations on facing pages. Anatomic terms within each major section are listed alphabetically with relevant information arranged in tabular form on left-hand pages. The facing right-hand pages contain matching line drawings with clear, easy-to-read labels illustrating in color every anatomic structure described in the text. And unlike other textbooks, Melloni's Student Atlas of Human Anatomy uniquely illustrates veins with the same care given to illustrations of arteries, including variations as well as common configurations.

"This is a book written from the student's perspective. Its unique format makes it suitable as a ready reference for finding significant information quickly — an important factor for students preparing for examinations. Because of its large number of illustrations, this book can also be used by health practitioners when instructing patients. And it can also prove useful as a reference for students and practitioners in the many allied health fields."
-The Authors

The book contains two-color illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: John A. McNulty, PhD (Loyola University Medical Center)
Description: The second edition of this atlas comprises more than 1,000 illustrations accompanied by descriptive information presented in table format. The first edition was published in 1988.
Purpose: Anatomy is a visual subject. To facilitate its comprehension, the authors have compiled an impressive series of illustrations that are arranged alphabetically within the principal structural categories (e.g., arteries, bones, muscles, etc.). The breadth and high quality of the material are the result of the authors' cumulative years as teachers, illustrators, and instructional designers.
Audience: According to the authors, the book is designed primarily for the student who needs a "ready reference for finding significant information quickly," especially in preparation for exams. Actually, the audience for this book extends to anyone who requires a convenient reference of anatomical structures.
Features: The atlas is divided into sections on arteries, bones, muscles, nerves, veins. and ligaments. Except for the ligaments, each section lists the respective structures alphabetically with descriptive information in table form and up to 8 figures from various regions on the facing page. This mixing detracts from the intricate structural-functional relationships that students are expected to glean from each region of the body. The use of Latin terms in the tables could be another source of frustration for students, although equivalent English terms are used in the index.
Assessment: The quality of the illustrations and the information provided in the accompanying tables make this atlas a useful resource for those students of anatomy who require a ready reference of anatomical structure.
