Having come to appreciate and love learning about human anatomy in my career as a medical device sales professional, I have found Busch’s book to be as intriguing as it is entertaining. The author (and illustrator as well!) has taken her dragon anatomy study and descriptions deep enough, with references to currently roving and flying earthly creatures, to bring the existence of her dragon species to plausible reality! We purchased a copy of Theoretical Dragon Anatomy for ourselves....just In case we need to identify one in the future.....and one for our grandchildren, especially one very bright inquisitive young man who will eat this book up.....and learn some incredible biology, anatomy, and big words (that he will want to figure out) thanks to Busch’s excellent research and attention to detail. If I were a biology teacher, I would want every one of my students to have a copy of this....to let their imaginations run wild as they see how their learnings of anatomy have been applied to this book in such a creative fashion.
