Publishers Description
Human Body is a concise guide to the structure, functions, and disorders of the body. Using full-color, highly detailed illustrations and clear, accessible language, this book is a fascinating introduction to how the body works and what may go wrong. The first part, Anatomy of the Human Body, begins with a medical atlas that shows how the parts of the body fit together. Each individual body system -- such as the skeletal and digestive systems -- is then fully illustrated and explained in detail. A compelling section on the human life cycle examines the changes in the body from conception to old age. In the second part of the book, Diseases and Disorders, some of the most common disorders are described and illustrated, system by system, with explanations of exactly what goes wrong and why. Medical conditions covered include infections, injuries, and cancer. Finally, there is a concise glossary of medical terms.

Human Body  Mar 11, 2008
The book is excellent for anyone who wants to learn the body systems and how they work. Very detailed illustrations make that easy and the language is simple enough for a novice. The only disappointment was the size of the book. I was hoping to get the coffee table size I saw in my chiropractor's office and instead got a very thick, heavy 5 x 7 size.
Very detailed and concise book!  Nov 3, 2007
I truly love this book. It's small enough to take anywhere and it has all the information that one could need on the spot.
Neat!  May 5, 2007
I bought this for a friend who loves things like this, but before I sent it off to him I took a look at it myself. I thought this was the perfect book for anybody that really wants details about what goes on inside ourselves. It has great full color diagrams and tons of information. A great pick!
Wonderful small size atlas  May 1, 2007
Great book. For those who are just interested in anatomy will be perfect and should be enough, but medical students would rather use it as a wonderfully colored and easy to read supplement. It's small size, you can keep it in your purse and read anywhere. The best value of that book are colored photos and illustrations with detailed explanations that everybody will undurstand. I personally loved it.
A must have  Feb 1, 2007
I am currently pursuing a degree in Medical Transcription and an instructor recommended this book.

This book is great. It is small and compact. You can carry it with you anywhere and it fits easily into a backpack. There is so much information in this little. It is written in a way that is clear and concise and easy to understand.

This book has come in very handy. Not only in my Transcription work, but also in some of my other classes. I definitely plan on taking this little book with me when I start my internship and job in Medical Transcription. This is a great resource to have. I highly recommend this book to others.
