Customer Reviews of The Human Body in Health and Illness
Great Anatamy & Physio Book
I was required to get this textbook for the anatomy and physiology class that I am taking. It is a GREAT book. It is easy enough to understand which will allow me to use it when I beging to teach HS Bio. It also comes with a CD-rom which allows you to color and name the different parts of different systems. I highly recommend this book!
the Human Body in Health and Illness
The format of this book is easy to understand...it makes a sometimes difficult subject fun! Students from a variety of academic backgrounds will find this book helpful...it is written with all students in mind. Students with high level academic skills are lead into additional exercises where their skills are challenged. Our college has used this book to train Massage Therapists. We found this text and the study guide perfect for body workers training out of the traditional academic A & P setting. There is an emphasis on providing information regarding contraindications which these students must know in order for them to work effectively with a variety of clients. I highly recommend this book for faculty looking for an Anatomy & Physiology text which addresses classes with multiple academic levels and styles.
The Human Body in Health and Illness, Second Edition
This book is really easy to reed and to follow. It goes in depth but the pictures and the way that the vocabulary is explained makes it fun, interesting and easy to comprehend. It is the best Anatomy and Physiology book that I have read so far.
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!
