Excellent illustrations--a fitting adjunct to Gray's Anatomy. This would be a good present to give to any premed student, or young person considering a medical career.

By Amber on April 27, 2013
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Published in 2006, 'Inside the Body' is a picture book has truly amazing images of anatomical structures. It is arranged into 4 chapters: cells, tissues, systems and brain & senses. Each page has a picture and little blurb of info to explain things in simple terms so that anyone can understand. I recommend it to anyone interested in human anatomy, especially students who are studying anatomy and are visual learners!
