Having been out of school for a while I didn't know if I'd moved past the point of no return in attaining specific anat knowledge. I opted for the idiot guide to simply get my mind into "learning mode". I have had this book a few weeks now and get a grounding of what I will be dealing with in the official text books by utilizing this one first. Basic it is, but that is what I needed to get my brain going. It is well written and understandable and that is what most of us require in a new field of interest. You can't go wrong with this book. It is NOT filled with everything you need to know regarding anatomy but covers the general outline. I need props to learn and this is one of them.

I purchased this book as a "prep" for A&P for nursing school. Let me tell you it was one of the best investments I made. The illustrations were easy to understand, and it made it a LOT easier to comprehend the meanings and definitions without all of the medical mumbo-jumbo.

I needed a quick reference to understand the anatomy that my chiropractor was describing about my lower back problem that sprung up one week so I got The Complete Idiot's Guide to Anatomy from the library. It provided most of the information that I wanted in an understandable manner. The strength of this book is that it strikes a good balance between illustrations and explanatory text.

So far I have been able to find in this book all of the college and professional athletes' injuries reported in the newspaper such as a torn anterior cruciate ligament and torn meniscus in the knee joint and injured rotator cuff in the shoulder joint.

Some of the drawings need to be labeled as to whether they are a front, back or top view and whether a right leg, hand, etc or left one if being depicted. Most of the time the position of the viewer and the handedness of the anatomy can be deduced from the drawing but view labels on all of the illustrations would be a welcome addition.

The archetype of this anatomy book is How to Keep Your Volkswagon Alive ... for the Compleat Idiot (1970) by John Muir which brings the necessary knowledge to amateur mechanics who would be intimidated by the presentation in a factory shop manual. The Complete Idiot's Guide to Anatomy serves a similar function for understanding the complex subject of anatomy. It brings to the reader the basic foundation (all 300 pages worth) without being overwhelming. I consider this book a very important work in bringing human anatomy information to the average person.

The Color Atlas of Human Anatomy by Wolf-Heidegger might be the next reference you want to consult for more information. It has very detailed layer by layer illustrations but very little explanatory text.
