The best book on Physiology I have seen. The authors must be congratulated for the effect they intended to: make the text seem as if it were written by one single person. Beautiful and relevant mechanical analogies, proper diagrams, the physics of physiology and the maths of it. A must for everyone who intends lo learn the subject by heart.
This Bible of a book may be recommended not only for the medical undergrads, but also for medical teachers, postgraduates pursuing physiology, cardiology and neurology or multidisciplinary researchers.
