the pictures are not worth a thousand words
on July 25, 2010
This is a good beginning mammalian guide for students, although the pictures could use clarity, as at times you cannot distinguish what part of the cat you are viewing in the text. Some of the shots are up close with no orientation map, in other words for the inexperienced student, the picture may be of shoulder muscle mass, but the student cannot tell whether it is left or right, or possibly a hip for that matter, as the shots are close up and do not have any orientation to them. I was able to find better photography online, making this text not worth the money photographically speaking. However, for the beginning anatomy student, the text combined with a decent professor is useful.
