This presents a lucid and enticing introduction to the subject of anatomy, broad in scope and deep in insights. It enables the reader to make sense of the architecture of the human body by explaining structure and relating it to function. Because it deals primarily with fundamental principles, its subject matter is unlikely to become dated.
