About the Author

Craig Freudenrich is a life scientist and a former AP Biology teacher with over 25 years experience in biomedical research, science education, and scientific/technical writing. He has a Ph.D. in Physiology from the University of Pittsburgh and currently teaches courses at Duke University's Talent Identification Program.

Jane Gardner holds an M.S. in Education from the University of Massachusetts and an M.S. in Geology from Virginia Tech, and is a member of the National Association of Science Writers. She has worked as a lecturer at Bentley College, a high school science teacher, and an Associate Editor of science textbooks.

Gerard J. Tortora is Professor of Biology and former coordinator at Bergen Community College in Paramus, New Jersey, where he teaches human anatomy and physiology as well as microbiology. He received his bachelor's degree in biology from Fairleigh Dickinson University and his master's degree in science education from Montclair State College. He is a member of many professional organizations, such as the Human Anatomy and Physiology Society (HAPS), the American Society of Microbiology (ASM), American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAS), National Education Association (NEA), and the Metropolitan Association of College and University Biologists (MACUB).

Above all, Jerry is devoted to his students and their aspirations. In recognition of this commitment, Jerry was the recipient of MACUB's 1992 President's Memorial Award. In 1996, he received a National Institute for Staff and Organizational Development (NISOD) excellence award from the University of Te4xas and was selected to represent Bergen Community College in a campaign to increase awareness of the contributions of community colleges to higher education. Jerry is the author of several best-selling science textbooks and laboratory manuals, a calling that often requires an additional 40 hours per week beyond his teaching responsibilities. Nevertheless, eh still makes time for four or five weekly aerobic workouts that include biking and running. he also enjoys attending college basketball and professional hockey games and performances at the Metropolitan Opera House.

Bryan Derrickson is Professor of biology at Valencia community College in Orlando, Florida, where he teaches human anatomy and physiology as well asgeneral biology and human sexuality. He received his bachelor's degree in biology from Morehouse college and his Ph.D. in Cell Biology from Duke University. Bryan's study at Duke was in the Physiology Division within the Department of Cell Biology, so while his degree is in Cell Biology his training focused on physiology. At Valencia, he frequently serves on faculty hiring committees. He has served as a member of the Faculty Senate, which is the governing body of the college and as a member of the Faculty Academy committee (now called the Teaching and Learning Academy), which sets the standards for the acquisition of tenure by faculty members. Nationally, he is a member of the Human Anatomy and Physiology Society (HAPS) and the National Association of Biology Teachers (NABT).

Bryan has always wanted to teach. Inspired by several biology professors while in college, he decided to pursue physiology with an eye to teaching at the college level. He is completely dedicated to the success of his students. He particularly enjoys the challenges of his diverse student population, in terms of their age, ethnicity, and academic ability, and finds being able to teach all of them, despite their differences, a rewarding experience. His students continually recognize Bryan's efforts and care by nominating him for a campus award known as the "Valencia Professor Who Makes Valencia A Better Place to Start." Bryan has received this award three times in the past six years.

As a non native english speaker, I truly love this book. It's simple written with clear images. If you just look at the images, you will learn a lot. I even showed this book to my A&P instructor, he was impressed and said this is an awesome book with nice images. He even said, he might contact the publishers and use this book for his classes.

National Geographic has bent over backwards producing clear figures illustrating anatomy, physiology, and many processes. Like any serious subject, a one-pass read doesn't suffice. Thus, each chapter starts off with a hierarchical a learning plan:
-- a gorgeous picture with an illustrative paragraph designed to pique curiosity,
-- a learning plan detailing successively deep levels of understanding: section concepts, figures & their processes, and finally reading the text,
-- periodic questions encouraging timely review,
-- real-world scenarios inspiring future medical professionals with application of the current topic,
-- finally online content supplementing difficult/abstract concepts.

Having recently acquired my PhD in physics (with no life science since high school biology), this book seems to be as good an introduction as can be expected. The cell (chapter 3) was particularly difficult because of the simultaneous introduction of new nouns and verbs simultaneously; these multiple unknowns compound the difficulty -- think fixing a string of Christmas lights with two bad bulbs. In the future, a video-based introduction to cell organelles would be a pedagogically superior approach.

The book smells exactly like a pack of cigarettes. It was in good condition otherwise. It's just hard to study with that smell.
