A solid scientific presentation of the principles of the human structure and function! The outstanding illustration program and innovative learning features frame a superb balance between anatomy and physiology that emphasizes correlations between normal physiology and pathophysiology, normal anatomy and pathology, and homeostasis and homeostatic imbalances.

    Great textbook for A and P students

    This is an excellent book for anatomy and physiology. The illustrations are great. The topics are explained with simplicity. I especially loved the muscular and skeletal sections. I also recommend: Anatomy and Physiology Study Guide: Key Review Questions and Answers with Explanations by Patrick Leonardi (Vol 1) (Vol 2) This study guide had great review questions for my college exams. It showed me the type of questions to look out for. These three books helped me a lot with getting good grades.

    Informative and Descriptive Textbook

    The book is great. It has a lot of information and description, but it is not complicated to understand. It covers anatomy and physiology of the body systems.
