From the Back Cover
Highly rated by "First Aid for the USMLE" !The new gold standard for learning anatomy...
"Atlas of Anatomy, Second Edition," is "the" essential resource for anyone studying gross anatomy. Packed with over 2,400 full-color illustrations, this atlas guides you step-by-step through each region of the body, helping you master the details of anatomy.
- Exquisite full-color illustrations with clear, thorough labeling and descriptive captions
- Even more clinical correlations help students make the connection between anatomy and medicine
- Coverage of each region intuitively arranged to simplify learning: beginning with the skeletal framework, then adding muscles, organs, vasculature, and nerves, and concluding with topographic illustrations that put it all together
- Over 170 tables summarize key anatomic information for ease of study and review
- Innovative, user-friendly format in which each two-page spread is a self-contained guide to a topic
- Surface anatomy spreads now include regions and reference lines or planes in addition to landmarks and palpable structures to develop physical exam skills
- Muscle Fact spreads ideal for memorization, reference, and review organize the essentials about muscles, including origin, insertion, innervation, and action
- New sectional anatomy spreads at the end of units build familiarity with 2D views of anatomic regions
- Access to WinkingSkull.com PLUS, with over 500 images from the book for labels-on and labels-off review and timed self-tests for exam preparation
"Atlas of Anatomy" is the student's choice:
"Thieme is the best anatomy atlas by far, hands down. Clearer pictures, more pictures, more realistic pictures, structures broken up in ways that make sense and shown from every angle...includes clinical correlations and summary charts of innervations and actions. That's about all there is to it. Just buy it. Thank you Thieme!!! Ok, now back to studying..."
"In my opinion this book surpasses them all. It's the artwork. The artist has found the perfect balance of detail and clarity. Some of these illustrations have to be seen to be believed.... The pearls of clinical information are very good and these add significance to the information and make it easier to remember. Easier to remember is key."

1. It is not the standard for most schools, Netters is.
2. Netters floods each picture with as much anatomical information as possible. Thieme goes for a cleaner look and seems to include less information per page. This is a double edge sword. It makes for easier to see images/ easier "big picture" learning, but you want to throw this book across the room when your trying to find a nerve/vessel that simply isn't highlighted in the picture (when you think it should be). Many times it will be in netters, so in Anatomy lab most tables used netters. Never saw people using this.
I personally bought this book, but did not use it extensively. A lot of anatomy learning was done in labs, and netters was the go to for reason listed in #2.
Overall I don't recommend netters over this, nor do I recommend this over netters. It is really just personal preference. This is a great book, and will serve any anatomy student well. I wouldn't necessarily suggest it for anatomy lab, however.
Had such a hard time trying to understand anatomy in med school. If only I had this one atlas, it would have made things so much easier and clearer. A must have for all medical students and healthcare professionals.
Forget about Grant's, Netter, and the rest. If there's one book to choose, its definitely this one.
This is probably due in part to the fact that I teach INTRODUCTORY anatomy. I find this atlas makes structures much more distinct at the expense of some realism - so it's great when I want to show students things that they've never seen before. Other atlases may be more suitable for other reasons.
This brand of anatomy book has details about the artery network that are often skipped in other books; gentle bodywork for nerves and arteries is the cutting edge in my field (Rolfing), so this element was key for me.
