Editorial Reviews

Booknews
The British Gray's is a colorful, stylishly illustrated version of the classic anatomy reference with commentary and essays by specialists in their fields, and at nearly twice the price of the American edition one would expect no less. This current edition features the conventional divisions of study with numerous classification changes, including new sections on surface anatomy and neonatal anatomy. Much of the information provided reflects the tremendous changes and advances in molecular biology and imaging which have occurred since 1989. Includes photographs as well as diagrams and drawings.

Written in the 1850s by a young doctor, Henry Gray, Gray's Anatomy was the most comprehensive and accessible anatomy of its time. This beautifully produced slipcased volume contains the historic text of the second edition and all of Henry Vandyke Carter's masterly drawings. It is essential reading for anyone with an interest in the history of medicine or in the amazingly complex machine that is the human body.

If you plan on working in the medical field as a Doctor, Surgeon, or if you just want to expand your medical knowledge of the human anatomy, then this is the book. This hardcover comes in a slipcased box to keep it protected. Inside the book you can find things like skeletal breakdowns, muscular breakdowns, and illustrations of each with in depth reading in each section.

I work in the medical field and I have always had a fascination of how the human body works and is built. This book is a must have in learning these things. The illustrations are a bonus to the reading. I proudly display this on my bookshelf and find myself looking through it for many pieces of information.

The best ever anatomy book I have seen.A great help to both teachers and students of anatomy.

This book is very informative, but only if you have a basic idea of the medical terms used. I don't recommend it to people not taking an anatomy class, or for someone who doesnt plan on pursuing a medical career.
