The new gold standard for learning anatomy...

Atlas of Anatomy, Second Edition, is the essential resource for anyone studying gross anatomy. Packed with over 2,400 full-color illustrations, this atlas guides you step-by-step through each region of the body, helping you master the details of anatomy.

Key Features:

  • Exquisite full-color illustrations with clear, thorough labeling and descriptive captions
  • Even more clinical correlations help students make the connection between anatomy and medicine
  • Coverage of each region intuitively arranged to simplify learning: beginning with the skeletal framework, then adding muscles, organs, vasculature, and nerves, and concluding with topographic illustrations that put it all together
  • Over 170 tables summarize key anatomic information for ease of study and review
  • Innovative, user-friendly format in which each two-page spread is a self-contained guide to a topic
  • Surface anatomy spreads now include regions and reference lines or planes in addition to landmarks and palpable structures to develop physical exam skills
  • Muscle Fact spreads ideal for memorization, reference, and review organize the essentials about muscles, including origin, insertion, innervation, and action
  • New sectional anatomy spreads at the end of units build familiarity with 2D views of anatomic regions
  • Access to WinkingSkull.com PLUS, with over 500 images from the book for labels-on and labels-off review and timed self-tests for exam preparation

Atlas of Anatomy is the student's choice:

Thieme is the best anatomy atlas by far, hands down. Clearer pictures, more pictures, more realistic pictures, structures broken up in ways that make sense and shown from every angle...includes clinical correlations and summary charts of innervations and actions. That's about all there is to it. Just buy it. Thank you Thieme!!! Ok, now back to studying...

In my opinion this book surpasses them all. It's the artwork. The artist has found the perfect balance of detail and clarity. Some of these illustrations have to be seen to be believed.... The pearls of clinical information are very good and these add significance to the information and make it easier to remember. Easier to remember is key.

I'm a 1st year medical student at a school that is pretty dedicated to Netter's, with Clinically Oriented Anatomy (Moore) as a supplement. I bought The Theime atlas because the presentation of some of the information was organized a little more to my way of learning. For example, the innervation of the limb muscles is laid out in charts that I seem to process more easily than what's in Moore. The pictures are beautiful. Netter was no slouch, the work is amazing, but the plates in Netter's are more painted and artistic compared to the clean, sharp lines of this atlas.

The biggest downside to buying this is that it is not what our school uses, so references in presentations and note packages are all to the Netter's plates, leaving you to dig for corresponding plates in Theime. I'm happy I bought it, but it may be overkill for some.

I have never ceased to be amazed about the human body from the overall design down to subatomic particles and everything in between; everywhere you look it is amazing and fascinating. The Atlas of Anatomy completely does it the justice it deserves. Whether layperson or medical professional, everyone can appreciate this book; in my opinion, it should be a required textbook for all high school students helping to set a foundation for Americans to have enough understanding of their own bodies (their most important asset) to take more responsibility in their self-care. There are more than 2,400 elegant illustrations and schematics, over 150 summary tables, and effective two-page spreads for presenting concepts. The illustrations are extraordinary in their detail, accuracy, and beauty; these illustrations are actually ground-breaking in anatomical education setting the standard until perhaps we have 3D holograms?

There are 704 9x11" pages and each one is just as amazing and fantastic. The organization of this vast material is also effective giving color coding on the upper right corner of the pages:
brown - Table of Contents
yellow - Back
rose - Thorax
lime green - Abdomen
forest green - Pelvis & Perineum
blue - Upper Limb
orange - Lower Limb
brick - Head & Neck
emerald green - Neuroanatomy
brown - Appendix

I think the value of Atlas of Anatomy is well over $100 so Amazon price is a steal. As if that wasn't enough, there is another bargain included in the purchase of the book. While WinkingSkull.

I owned the first edition of Thieme's atlas and used it for my first year of anatomy in medical school. The illustrations, artwork, and level of detail were incredible and so elegant they made you want to keep learning anatomy. Due to how impressed my classmates and I were, I decided to get the 2nd edition as well when it released in May 2012 from the publisher's website. It fixed several errors/inconsistencies from the first edition, and has added new sectional anatomy slides at the end of each unit, and more of those important clinical correlations. Also, the Abdomen and Pelvis/Perineum are now two separate sections, rather than one combined "Abdomen & Pelvis" section, providing more emphasis for each. The organization of each section is very precise, starting with surface anatomy and then followed by the bones, muscles, blood vessels, lymphatics, nerves, and a topographical summary of each given area. Finally I just have to comment one more time how absolutely BEAUTIFUL each picture is, the illustrators clearly made a painstaking effort to make sure each drawing was as realistic with the shadings and clarity as possible. If you want to learn more about human anatomy and enjoy it, do yourself a favor and pick this one up.

I own the Netter's Atlas and when I use them side-by-side I find myself leaning more towards this book. It is very detailed and shows the individual muscles with their respective attachments, which is extremely useful my anatomy lab.

I am impressed with this book. I love to know where everything is located in the body in relation to other things. This helps me see a lot. Very detailed. If you have a larger device it is easier to read and to study but I still enjoy it on my Kindle Fire.

The moment you open Atlas of Anatomy you will be blown away by the breadth and quality of the illustrations. Page after page of fantastic, richly detailed graphics with great looking design to the whole layout. At more than 700 pages of close to photographic glossy style printing... the physical presence of the book makes it feel like something that should cost 3X as much. That's something rarely said for most books. The content is clearly aimed for a specialized audience and makes a fantastic reference that owners will treasure for years afterwards.

Highest Recommendation possible.

Atlas of Anatomy, Second Edition, edited by Gilroy, MacPherson, and Ross is an exquisitely done book that is an excellent reference for both medical professionals and the layperson. The book is broken down into 43 sections covering every part of human anatomy. The illustrations are accurate, detailed, and very high quality. The illustrations are all a good size to provide enough detail and specificity of the anatomy being covered. You will not be squinting to see details as the illustrations are all sized appropriately. Additionally, the coloring used in the illustrations adds to the quality and detail. Throughout the book there are informative "Clinical" vignettes which cover medical conditions related to the anatomical topic of discussion. There are also diagnostic photos of x-rays and MRI's. Dispersed within the book are many tables which relay important anatomical information.

Having used a number of anatomy books in the past I can say that Atlas of Anatomy is the best anatomy book that I have used. The material is presented in a manner that is well organized and clear. The illustrations are really phenomenal quality and show with clarity how complicated and amazing the human body is structured.

Additionally, you receive a code for free access to WinkingSkull.com PLUS which has over 500 images online from the book and timed self-tests for exam preparation or just to test your knowledge. I highly recommend Atlas of Anatomy, Second Edition.
