Abstract:

This book is especially geared toward beginning students preparing for health-related careers, but its approach and depth are appropriate for other undergraduates as well ... It is intended to serve as an introductory text ... Its broad coverage includes all aspects of physiology ... The important concepts are presented without the biochemical and quantities details that become obstacles rather than aids to understanding for a student who does not have sufficient background ... Enough relevant anatomy is included to make the inseparable relation between structure and function clear.-Pref.
