one of the best anatomy texts

This is my favorite anatomy textbook for many reasons. When I first took an anatomy class I started off being very excited about it. After what seemed like months of lectures and reading on the chemistry of water, lipid bilayers and other basic bio concepts we started in on real anatomy. By that time however I was too bored to care anymore and I had lost whatever initiative I'd had to learn the stuff. I love the fact that this book gets right into anatomy. I'm not saying the basic biology concepts aren't important, but people really can learn, appreciate, enjoy and benefit from a lot of anatomy whether they've mastered those concepts yet or not. I believe that the "big picture" type knowledge gained from diving right in with a book like this should inspire many learners to go back and really learn the underlying chemistry and cell biology in more detail...more efficiently though because they know why they need to know it. The clinical focus of this text is another major plus, constantly reminding readers of the materials relevance. The illustrations and figures are excellent, and the text is well written and very clear. I highly recommend this book for students and teachers of anatomy, and anyone interested in learning.

Excellent Verbage and WORTH the Extra Time!

When I was in Medical Anatomy Courses, this book was my saving grace! If there is ever a time that you do not understand what the lecturer is saying, Moore will have a good section of text on the topic. The best thing to do, is go to that section-- ex: Muscles of the Neck--- and learn all the muscles names, Origins and Insertions, which ones are being used in which motion, the nerves that inervate them, to what level of the spine, the arteries and where they come from, the veins and where they go to, etc, etc... Moore will give clinical examples too. If someone cannot move their chin upward, which muscle or nerve might be effected etc... Unlike Netter's and Gray's Anatomy texts, which are praised for their illustrations and details... Moore's emphasis is verbal (not visual). The pictures are more general, cartoonish, not like a cadaver. Many students did not appreciate this book for that reason, it seemed too wordy to them. That is quite understandable during the rigorous schedule of Medical Training. There were many times I did not have time to read it as much as I would have liked. There are times when memorization is all you can do. However, if one does take the time to read Moore, they will surely remember the details of the Anatomy Structures very well. This book would be EXCELLENT for any pre-medical students the summer before entering Medical School. I wish I could go back in time and do that myself. Anatomy lecture and Anatomy Lab is one of the more challenging subjects in Graduate level programs. It is required that you know a great volume of new terms and structures in infinite detail. Good Luck, and Happy Anatomy Reading!

Useful at all levels

This is a wonderful textbook for anatomy at all levels. I have used this book as an undergrad in comparative anatomy; I used this instead of the offered text in anatomy in medical school; now I use this text in residency (physical medicine and rehabilitation) both as a personal reference and to generate presentations for students and residents. The illustrations are good, but netter may have some better ones. The best part of this textbook are the comprehensive tables that are really clearly organized and make learning and memorizing easier due to their intuitive layout. The clinical pearls are good, not always great. However, I haven't seen other books do nearly as well in their 'clinical' content as Moore. Great book to have on the shelf forever. By the way, my 'softcover' has through lasted years routine use.

Medical School Essential

I found this book to be absolutely essential for getting through medical school gross anatomy, although not everyone does. I can't imagine learning anatomy without Moore and Dailey, but I have classmates who never picked it up and learned anatomy from Grant's Dissector, Netter's Atlas, and lecture notes alone. On the one hand, Moore and Dailey is so replete with details that it's not the most time efficient way of studying, but it's got pretty much everything that you'll need to know in it, and probably more. It's also got such great illustrations that, armed with only this text, a dissector, and a cadaver, it's possible to get through gross anatomy with Moore and Dailey and no atlas, although I would recommend picking up Netter's atlas, too, and possibly Rohen and Yokochi for self-testing yourself if you really want to splurge. Gross anatomy is rough, so do yourself a favor and don't skimp on buying study materials to save yourself a few bucks.

Rave review for Moore anatomy book

I thoroughly enjoyed studying anatomy with the Moore's book. The illustrations are great--I especially found the individual drawings of the leg and arm muscles helpful, and the 3-D drawings of the pelvic region helped me to better visualize this complex area. I was able to study most of the time from Moore and only had to use the Color Atlas of Anatomy as a reference.The text was clearly written and very detailed. At times, it was more detailed than my first year anatomy class, but I was able to skip or skim these sections. I don't think I ever found Moore to be lacking in information.I found the boxes highlighting attachments, function, or distribution for nerves, vessels, and muscles to be very helpful. They proved to be a quick reference. Finally, the blue boxes with clinical information made anatomy so much more interesting. I learned many relevant facts and applied, clinical anatomy.
