This is a very good book if you are like me and use it for artistic reference. While it doesn't contain a lot of colorful pictures it is just enough to give you some insight into how the human anatomy is constructed and moves. It is also good to refer to when you read an article about Jennifer Aniston and you want to know what a septum is.

Grays: The fundamental medical book

Instead of purchasing a book for embroyology, one for histology, one for anatomy, etc., if you are starting into medicine, save your pennies and just get a Gray's Anatomy. Everything that you will need to know in your career is within its pages. The cellular illustrations are perfect, and it is far easier to work with a book that is unified, so that when an anatomical feature is described, the reference is given to the page in the embroyology describing where it originated, and to a specific histological feature. The book is written by a team of experts and edited precisely, so the knowledge is cutting edge in every discipline, and holds far fewer errors than other textbooks. Buy this book and keep it on your shelf throughout school and then move it to your doctor's office.

Get THIS version, not a paperback! It's the best!

Gray's Anatomy, first published in 1858, is thought by the average layman to be merely a historical classic, and is usually purchased as a paperback reprint of the 1905 version.If you want the most up-to-date description of human anatomy, steer clear of the paperbacks and buy the 38th edition in hardback. It costs a lot more, but it is more than worth it. It contains an amazing amount of technical information that has only been discovered in the last ten or twenty years (such as the spiral architecture of the heart, MRI imagery, and details of microbiology and cellur arcitecture). It even contains a nice summary of the history of the universe. If I had the rest of my life (I'm a 35-year old engineer) to do nothing but read this book, I could not come close to absorbing all knowledge it contains.I firmly believe that this is the most important book I own.I recommend this book highly to anyone who wishes to learn more about the marvelous machine that is the human body.
