The third edition of this popular introduction to human anatomy and physiology has been revised, enlarged and redesigned to make it even more accessible. By using glossaries, tables, clear illustrations and well structured text, the book describes and explains the eight body systems, histology, and the accessory organs. William Arnould-Taylor MSc PhD (Physiology) has a distinguished record in the field of physiology. His contributions to promotion of education have been considerable, as an international examiner, author and broadcaster. This book will prove invaluable for anyone requiring an understanding of the structure and function of the human body. It will be particularly useful for students of courses related to sport, physical therapy or beauty therapy.
