Review quote

"This is the only comprehensive book I have read in this field. In comparison to the broader physiology textbooks that include discussions of these systems, this one is clear and easy to read. It also provides just the right amount of clinical correlation for college students or first-year medical students." Robert Stern, MA (University of Chicago Medical Center) 4 star Doody rating!show more
