More About the Author

Bruce Colbert is the Director of Allied Health at the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown. He is a passionate teacher and writer whose main goal is to make the subject material come alive for the students. Having some learning disabilities as a young child forced him to develop creative ways to learn material that he utilizes in his textbooks and DVDs. He may still have some learning disabilities as evidenced by continuing to play competitive basketball after three knee surgeries and now well into his 50's. He feels learning should be engaging, relevant, challenging and even fun. His main writing interests are medically related topics and "softer skills" development such as stress and time management, critical and creative thinking and communication issues.

I ordered this book for a class (Anatomy & Physiology) I was going to be taking through AHIMA. I checked and double checked the book requirement, which included: stock number, authors, edition, and class code. This book was a one hundred percent match, or so I thought. Unfortunately, the chapters in this book did not correspond with the chapters/modules given in the Syllabus. In most cases, I was able to pair up the chapter with the module and proceed studying. However, there were some questions on the tests that were not worded the same and/or were not mentioned in the chapter. I should have returned the book, but, by the time I realized the mistake, I was already enrolled in the class. I thought I could save money by purchasing the book through Amazon. Going forward, I will be playing it safe by only getting my books through AHIMA. Otherwise, the shipping was prompt and I did not have any problems with the Seller.

I have read so many health/medical related books and at times have found them to be a bit verbose. This book was very refreshing. I actually read this for leisure. It was written in a very easy, or for lack of a better term "user friendly" manner. I received the book in great condition and there is quite a bit of information packed in this book. I would recommend for entry level health professionals, this is a book that can be used continuously as a reference book.

This book covers all the basics, but I was disappointed that it didn't go very in-depth with many sections. Multiple times it neglects an accurate explanation in favor of a simple metaphor. If you're looking for an easy to understand introduction and basic overview of anatomy and physiology this will be a good book, but if you already know the basics this isn't for you. Personally, I would have preferred if things weren't so oversimplified and expected more information from a college textbook.

Also, without opening the included CD, the book itself does not contain some of the information addressed in the chapter reviews. This is a complaint nearly everyone in my class has made. We've had to Google some questions in order to complete assignments because the book didn't address them. However, the CD may address these gaps should you choose to utilize it as well.

Overall a good book for a cursory A&P introduction, but anyone who's taken biology or read up on the subject won't learn much from this. Your satisfaction with this book will ultimately depend on what level of difficulty you're looking for. Also, the book is not complete without using the included CD.

I am a student at a community college level, and I do not like school. I'm pretty sure I'm some-what ADHD or something because I can't sit still through an entire class. This interactive book goes at a slow enough pace for me to understand but is fast enough for me to avoid getting bored. I love science and this is the perfect book to keep me interested for a WHILE.

The work book is amazing. I have yet to study for a test because the work book covers EVERYTHING. Some people in my class are trying to do this class without the workbook. I bet they are going to fail.

Another reviewer posted that this was not the correct textbook for the AHIMA Anatomy & Physiology course, however that is not correct. I am 3/4 of the way though the AHIMA A&P course, and I can attest that this is indeed the correct textbook to use. Might I suggest though that, if you can find it, that you also order the A&P 2nd Edition workbook to accompany the textbook. The soft-bound workbook is also titled, "Anatomy & Physiology for Health Professions:..." with the words "Workbook to Accompany" written above that at the top of the book cover. This workbook is written by the same author (Bruce J. Colbert), published by Pearson, and is meant to compliment and supplement the main textbook. I would also highly recommend that you make sure that the A&P textbook that you purchase includes the accompanying A&P CD. This invaluable learning tool includes learning games, chapter review quizzes and other media helps that you will use as you go through each and every chapter of the textbook. I highly recommend that as you take this course, that you access the entire gamut of available A&P materials and helps which include this textbook, the included textbook CD, the accompanying workbook, and of course the online learning material from AHIMA.
