The thirteenth edition of the phenomenally successful Principles of Anatomy and Physiology continues to set the standard for the discipline. The authors maintained a superb balance between structure and function and continue to emphasize the correlations between normal physiology and pathophysiology, normal anatomy and pathology, and homeostasis and homeostatic imbalances. The acclaimed illustration program continues to be refined and is unsurpassed in the market. The thirteenth edition is fully integrated with a host of innovative electronic media, including WileyPlus 5.0 (access purchased separately.) No other text and package offers a teaching and learning environment as rich and complete.
Reviewer: Steven K. Hamick, BIS, RCP, RRT (William Beaumont Hospitals) Description: This13th edition continues in the tradition of its predecessors of being arguably one of the best anatomy and physiology textbooks available. It integrates the classic text with online multimedia aids. The previous edition was published in 2008. Purpose: "Helping Teachers and Students Succeed Together" is the foundation of this book. This edition offers a balanced presentation of content, integrating online animations, visualizations, and MP3 downloads to reinforce concepts. Audience: Written for healthcare students taking two semesters of anatomy and physiology, it is used in many healthcare programs. Features: The book uses a homeostatic approach. It begins with chemical, cellular, and tissue levels of organization, then progresses into integumentary, skeletal, muscular, and nervous systems before moving into the various organ systems throughout the body. Each chapter begins with a statement, a brief overview of the chapter, and chapter objectives and contains numerous images, drawings, tables, and figures, plus Clinical Connections that highlight clinical relevance. Chapters end with a disorders section followed by medical terminology, chapter review and resource summary, self-quiz questions, critical thinking questions, and answers to figure questions posed within the chapter. Assessment: This is an outstanding anatomy and physiology textbook and ranks with other classics such as Hole's Human Anatomy and Physiology, 12th edition, Shier et al. (McGraw-Hill, 2010). Not only is it excellent for healthcare students, it also would be appropriate for high school students and as a reference in libraries.
New edition of a comprehensive, comprehensible text for an introductory course in anatomy and physiology, for students preparing for careers in health-related professions. Includes excellent color diagrams; examples of clinical applications and disorders; insets on orientation and body planes; flowcharts of feedback mechanisms; and learning aids including questions and answers, pronunciation guides, chapter glossaries, and study outlines. Comes with a paperback atlas of the human skeleton with photos. This eighth edition contains new cadaver photographs and new illustrations. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
Gerard J. Tortora is Professor of Biology and former Coordinator at Bergen Community College in Paramus, NJ, 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.

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).
