Structure and Function of the Human Body is written to provide a very basic understanding of anatomy and physiology for non-science readers and provides them with a proven pedagogical format to master terminology and understand concepts. Martini's easy-to-read writing style uses examples and anecdotes to help readers appreciate the relationship between structure and function. The hallmark illustration program, created by award-winning illustrator William Ober, M.D., helps readers visualize concepts and relationships.
