Abstract:

Helps readers visualize human anatomy. Widely regarded as the most readable and visually accessible book on the market, this textbook’s hallmark strengths—detailed art that teaches better, a reader-friendly narrative, and easy-to-use media and assessment tools–are enhanced through assignable anatomy animations and tutorials in MasteringA&P, more prominent in-book media references, and updated Focus Figures. Within the book, photos reinforce real-world applications, and cadaver photos and micrographs appear side-by-side with art, working together to help readers accurately visualize key anatomical structures. --
