"This is a working textbook, which enables its reader to enhance their anatomical and physiological skills. Its methodology incorporates structure, function and control. Although this is a laboratory book, it can be used in non-laboratory settings too thereby broadening its usability. It is readable with clear goals set for learning. As the learning develops for human anatomy there is inclusion of animal anatomy and physiology with graphics included of some animal dissections...It should also be considered by members of the health care professions who wish to revise or enhance their working knowledge of anatomical structures, scientific methods of analysis and relevant terminology."
