Review quote

"An exhaustive but absorbingly interesting treatise.... The artist will find it planned and written with a completeness and orderliness which make it the perfect reference book."--Art News and Review
"Ingeniously edited, well-organized, and illustrated with almost a thousand excellent factual three-dimensional renderings."--Los Angeles Times
"A very clear presentation. The schematic drawings are particularly useful in teaching introductory anatomy to students."--Terry Morrow, Texas Tech University
"I have used the book regularly for about 35 years and have found the mix of 'clinical' type renderings, clear 'muscle' charts, description and sectional graphic structural sketch pages to be excellent and to the point."--
"Very good illustrations/explanations--very helpful for students to understand such a complex system."--J.P. Manlapaz, North Virginia Community College
