The Human Body in Health & Disease - Soft Cover Version, 3rd Edition
Gary A. Thibodeau, PhD; and Kevin T. Patton, PhD
This updated third edition includes outstanding coverage of basic anatomy and physiology, plus the mechanisms of disease and pathologic conditions associated with each body system. Two unifying themes are integrated in this comprehensive text: the complementary nature of structure and function, and homeostasis. Homeostasis is used to show how "normal" structure and function are maintained, whereas failures of homeostasis are shown as basic mechanisms of disease. The reader is drawn into the subject by a clear, straightforward style, superior illustrations, and student-friendly features. Included FREE with the softcover text is Body Spectrum: Mosby's Electronic Anatomy Coloring Book CD-ROM.
