The third edition of 'Human Anatomy' is the most comprehensive, visually oriented introductory anatomy text available today. The atlas-size format allows for larger, carefully crafted line drawings and paintings that help students visualize the components of the human body. Where possible, the authors have also included dissection photos and photomicrographs that further enhance the visual learning process. More than a collection of colorful visuals, 'Human Anatomy' offers a lively, to-the-point writing style and student-friendly pedagogical aids that transform this text into a trusted companion. For a complete tour of this unique book, turn to page xxiii of the Preface and you will quickly see why it has been recognized for excellence by the Text and Academic Authors Association (first edition) and the Association of Medical Illustrators (second edition).
