About the author (2010)

The author has been involved with medical terminology in one way or another for most of her adult life. She excelled at a medical terminology program many years ago and worked as a medical transcriptionist for several years afterwards in a hospital. She then moved on to teaching anatomy, physiology and medical terminology to medical transcription students and did that for many years. Her most recent encounter with teaching was overseas, where she taught medical terminology to students whose first language wasn't English. That was quite the challenge and prompted her to write her first version of Doctor Talk ndash; Made Easy for English as a second language students. Her ability to "keep it simple, stupid" is unparalleled. She chose to write Doctor Talk ndash; Made Easy in order to share the exciting and amazing world of medical terminology with others. The human body is a very interesting and complex machine and the depth to which one could go is endless - and most books do just that...go into endless depth. For the home this book is more than adequate for a good understanding of the human body and the "doctor talk" surrounding it.
