Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The human body is the one topic that none of us can ignore. This impressive book-and-DVD package functions as an essential home reference for the entire family. The Human Body covers every aspect of the body's anatomy and function with trademark DK full-color clarity. Both parents and children will be captivated by the stunning photo-realism of the book's 900-plus labeled and captioned diagrams, which cover cells, organs, the muscular system, the skeleton, the brain, and much more. An interactive DVD contains vivid animated body processes, lending a Fantastic Voyage dimension to the experience. A valuable addition to any home library.

    I just turned 16 last monday and i got this book as a birthday gift. I love it. It's the perfect book tostart out with. it goes into such detail and has a picture example of almost everything. I hope one day to become a Physiologist and this book gives me perfect insight. i think it would be fabulous for medical students who need a quick straight forward refernce book. The only con to the whole book is the interactive DVD. I do wish it would be actually interavtive, or maybe im just not doing it right but over all you get your monys worth.
