Clinical Notes, regularly improved with visuals, show up inside each part and cause students to notice the illnesses and issues they will experience in their future medical services vocations.

2. Vocation Paths are meet based vignettes that feature 11 medical care experts. They show up toward the finish of each body framework. The accompanying callings are highlighted: crisis clinical expert (EMT), dental hygienist, knead advisor, doctor right hand, actual specialist, phlebotomist, pediatric medical caretaker, respiratory specialist, enlisted dietitian, a drug store professional, and sonographer.

3. The Big Picture confines briefly sort out center ideas life systems and physiology at notable focuses in a part. These real assertions give understudies the key ideas that they ought to recall five years after their life structures and physiology course, paying little heed to the particular profession way they seek after later on.

Coherence and visual adequacy

1. Spotlight Figures are a couple of page introductions that consolidate brief content and related visuals to impart data in an outwardly successful and understudy neighborly arrangement. The Spotlights make anatomical, physiological, and clinical substance simple to peruse and comprehend.

2. More successful figure association makes figures simpler for understudies to comprehend and examine. Figure titles are currently found reliably at the highest point of each figure, to present it, and figure part subtitles are currently found quickly under their particular figure parts for compelling content craftsmanship combination and simple perusing. Numerous figures have likewise been rearranged to lump data into more clear strides to manage understudies through complex cycles.

3. “Fabricate a-Body” System Integrators show up toward the finish of each body framework to fortify understudy comprehension of the interconnection across all body frameworks.

4. Simple to-peruse tables are based on another plan that puts together data unmistakably for productive considering.

Biography of Frederic Martini

I received my Ph.D. from Cornell University in comparative and functional anatomy for work on the pathophysiology of stress. In addition to professional publications that include journal articles and contributed chapters, technical reports, and magazine articles, I am the lead author of ten undergraduate textbooks, two Atlases, and five clinical manuals in the fields of anatomy and physiology or anatomy. I have also published a book for amateur naturalists and my most recent effort is a nonfiction work based on declassified WWII and post-war documents held in the archives of the US and other countries. I am currently affiliated with the University of Hawaii at Manoa, after retiring from teaching at the Maui campus. I have a long-standing bond with the Shoals Marine Laboratory, a joint venture between Cornell University and the University of New Hampshire.

I have been active in the Human Anatomy and Physiology Society (HAPS) for over 24 years and was a member of the committee that established the course curriculum guidelines for undergraduate anatomy and physiology. I am a President Emeritus of HAPS after serving as President-Elect, President, and Past-President over 2005–2007 and also belong to the American Physiological Society, the American Association of Anatomists, the Society for Integrative and Comparative Biology, the Australia/​New Zealand Association of Clinical Anatomists, the Hawaii Academy of Science, the American Association for the Advancement of Science, and the International Society of Vertebrate Morphologists.

Reviews of this book

Exactly what was required for my class.


Shipping was fast, and i got the book before class even started. It has great illustrations for studying, and several test yourself quizzes. I compared it with the newer edition, and there really isn’t a difference.


Great rental glad its available for renting!

I used this book for a class at UCLA, and it was fantastic. The writing in most anatomy books is quite dry, but this one does a good job of tying anatomy and physiology together in a readable, layperson-friendly format.


Book was in really good shape For being used. There were no marks or highlights in it.
