Guide to the Human Body

New or Used: 2 copies from $36.61
A fully illustrated guide to human anatomy, physiology and medicine. A greater understanding of the human body is an essential part of staying healthy. Learning basic anatomy and physiology is important, but technical medical texts are generally impenetrable. Guide to the Human Body, fully illustrated and clearly written, is an ideal reference. This new edition has been thoroughly updated to include the latest scientific developments, including sections on the brain, the male and female reproductive systems, and genes and inheritance. A concise A-Z medical encyclopedia describes over 600 medical conditions, many of which have been added or revised to include current information on timely subjects, including:
  • Skeletal and muscular systems
  • Nervous system
  • Glands and hormones
  • Cardiovascular system, tissues and organs
  • Immune system
  • Respiratory system
  • Digestive and urinary system
  • Reproductive system.
Concise, clear, up-to-date and illustrated with more than 250 colorful diagrams, Guide to the Human Body is an outstanding pocket-sized reference.
