Our customer reviews

This book provides a very basic overview of the concepts of anatomy. If you're after a book on regional anatomy, go for a more in-depth textbook like Gray's Anatomy, Grant's atlas of anatomy, or Essential Clinical Anatomy instead. I found this book a waste of money, as you don't really need a textbook for information this basic. Admittedly, an@tomedia is a good resource though.show more
