Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Gary T. Rapelje, BAS, RRT (William Beaumont Hospitals)
Description: The eighth edition of Memmler's Structure and Function of the Human Body is a successful update of the previous edition published in 2000. This is a tremendous resource for anyone in the entry level healthcare professions.
Purpose: This textbook is written for anyone in the field of health care. It provides an entry level understanding of anatomy and physiology and how the body interacts through form and function. The book is valuable and thoroughly meets all of the objectives.
Audience: The authors meet their mark in producing a text that provides comprehensive knowledge needed for nursing students and other students pursuing careers in health related fields.
Features: The book covers in a step-by-step basis the anatomy and physiology of the body and how the parts function in systems to create a whole. Each chapter starts out with a list of outcomes. Throughout the chapters, there are boldface terms that are defined in the text and glossary. Numerous tables and illustrations reinforce key points in the text. The index is complete and a useful CD-ROM is included to aid in the learning process.
Assessment: This book rivals similar books in this field in the way it helps readers learn terms and concepts in a multifaceted way. The eighth edition soundly replaces previous editions with its emphasis on key words and concepts through objectives, end of chapter questions, and supporting CD-ROM.
