Now in its second edition, this is undoubtedly the best single-volume medical atlas available today, the only better resource being Netter's classic eight-volume set, published in 13 physical volumes over 33 years starting in 1959 and originally called CIBA Collection of Medical Illustrations after the publisher. (The name was changed to Netter's Collection of Medical Illustrations by the new publisher, Novartis.) Once again, Netter's masterly artwork has been faithfully reproduced, though the first edition (LJ 12/89) has been updated to reflect current anatomical knowledge and to incorporate new cross-sectional images to assist in the recognition of current "scanned" images. Organized by anatomical regions, the illustrations are colorful, easily defined, and clearly labeled, and the book closes with a very easy-to-use 48-page index. Highly recommended for public and academic librariesAEric D. Albright, Duke Univ. Medical Ctr. Lib., Durham, NC

I bought the 5th edition because was cheaper and more affordable, but I compared it to the 6th edition that my teacher has in class and it is practically the same. You can get pretty much everything you need with the 5th edition, and save some money. I bought a used version, so obviously it didn't come with the Student Consult Access CD, but I've found that I didn't need it because there are so many other free resources online that I can use.
Quite simply the best anatomy book I know of, and as a radiologist, I familiar with many text that don't begin to compare, and at its current price, a bargin which shouldn't be passed by, as it has a place in every physician's library.
