There is a clear understanding of how the body parts are positionedand how they cooperate in motion. Roentgenogram sights depict theappearance of bone matter almost identically to the real x-rayform. The work is formulated to satisfy a wide constituency ofreaders i.e. students of the biological sciences, teachers,students of radiology and the general public. The book is aworthy addition to any science library.

A fine text

I had the pleasure of being a student of Dr. Rosse at the University of Washington. His text is organized in the same way that he teaches anatomy, emphasizing anatomical definitions and relationships in a structured and orderly manner. This edition also has great graphics that improve on prior editions. A fine addition to any medical library.

Polly A. Porter, MS, ATC , Physician Assistant student

This book is essential for medical students who want to conquer the basic educaiton in the health related profession- anatomy of the human body. It allows the student the ability to enter into the intrinsic areas of the body so he/she can develop an implicit and fully internalized understanding of the 3-D dynamic structure of the living human body.I found it as an excellent guide in reference to surgery because I was able to acquaint myself to the structures in proximity to each other. It is however, not for the entry level student. It would be more suited for a cadaver class, as opposed to a first time look at the human body. It promotes anatomical reasoning , a cognitive process that relates to manifestations of normal and abnormal function to anatomical entities.The book lacks a little in medical illustration but a supplement ( Netter's ) or a cadaver is a good addition to this text. It does combine photos, radiographs, and some fine detail illustrations, including cross-section anatomy.
