"The author succeeds in telling a clear, interesting story. The length of the story has intentionally been kept short; it is neither exhaustively complete nor over-simplified. The story is enriched by details about basic biologic mechanisms and clever ways nature has solved a problem or achieved a result." "This book will be a resource for the student of health science to help him or her understand and organize the topic; the established professional will appreciate the clarity and simplicity of the basic information that is sometimes dimmed by a plethora of details; and the general reader will satisfy his or her curiousity about the circulatory system and how it sustains life."--Jacket." ;
