This is an awesome and easy to read book. I took A & P I & II with the author Herlihy as my professor. At the end of the semester, I sold the book back to the bookstore. Who new that after I graduated and decided I wanted to go back to nursing school, I would be looking to re-buy the book online!

This is a great textbook - a fun, readable format for a topic that could very easily be really dry. Other texts I have used in continuing my nursing studies have paled in comparison to this one, which I used in my first course, A & P. Nothing can live up to this. Good job!
