Editorial Reviews

Gail B. Williams
This new anatomy and physiology text describes the essential aspects of human structure and function. The text has three unifying themes: the relationship between anatomy and physiology, the interactions among the organ systems, and the relationship of each organ system to homeostasis (good health). The purpose is to provide novice students with the essentials of anatomy and physiology. The goal is to present the complexities of structure and function in a simple, understandable manner. Targeted for students at an introductory level, the text makes anatomy and physiology concepts readily accessible to students of diverse backgrounds and varying educational levels. Although the authors do not indicate a specific target audience, the text appears appropriate for licensed practical nurse students and medical assistant students and may also be considered as a supplement or a recommended text for associate degree and baccalaureate nursing students. The text is organized generally according to body systems. Each chapter includes a chapter outline, student objectives, new terminology, study outline, and review questions. The color illustrations serve to complement and reinforce the various aspects of anatomy and physiology. Bold type is used to highlight new terminology and tables summarize important information in each chapter. In addition, all new terminology is presented phonetically and defined in the glossary. This is an excellent introductory anatomy and physiology text. It presents the complexities of structure and function in a concise, understandable manner. The organization of the text with the chapter features should provide the beginning student with a basic understandingof anatomy and physiology.

A very basic introductory text in human anatomy and physiology, organized by body system, assuming no prior knowledge of biology or chemistry. Features color illustrations, explanations of basic chemistry and its role in the physiology of the body, and discussion of normal aging changes for each body system, plus chapter study outlines, review questions, a glossary, and reference appendices, including a guide to medical terminology.
