People generally have different tastes in the types of atlases that they prefer to use, but I think that this one covers everything you would want to see.
The first thing you will notice with this book is, it's very high quality and attractive. It's a beautiful cover, sturdy material and the pages are thick and rigid. There are few, and for most people, no accidental tears that can occur with thinner pages.
The content itself was very thorough, but not complete. While nearly all structures in the body are shown, not all are labeled, which can easily lead to some confusion when trying to classify it, two examples I recall are the labial veins or in certain pictures identifying the maxillary vs transverse facial artery. Basic mistakes, but they'll happen if you need this book to learn. Of course, the pictures are so clear, if you have a schematic atlas, the labeling may not even be necessary, but for me I prefer everything labeled. On the same topic, they add at least one schematic representation of what structure they are representing (not near the depth of a separate atlas though), and when a secondary visual is needed they would highlight with paint. Examples of drawings, trajectorial lines of the femoral head, General architecture of a synovial joint, Meningeal coverings of the spinal cord.
Overall, this book gives a great understanding of how an actual human body will look but could be difficult to learn from; it's best to have an idealized view of it, such as Netter's or Grant's.
