Format: Paperback
This is not a very expensive text book for it's category. All the same it is a well written book by a reputable author and staff. The book demands that you pay full attention to every word in it's text. I mean that the text is written in a concise manner by a professional for the novice. Attention to detail is of utmost importance when you are studying. A solid basic knowledge of first year anatomy and physiology is essential. It wouldn't hurt to have your A&P text beside you. The author assumes that the student knows the basics and does not go into basic discussions but builds on each topic. Understand that this is a challenging text book pulling together all facets of A&P with full emphasis on Respiratory Care.
I personally find this text book a pleasant challenge. Keep in mind that the ultimate goal here is to be capable of keeping someone breathing. After all if you can't breath nothing else matters!

This book is really helpful if you're just starting out in Respiratory Therapy, the illusrations are great. The book is easy to read and understand. Great reference book. There are charts and quick references you can either cut out of the book or photo copy and have as a handy pocket guide.

The explanations and details have been simplified for easy digestion in an intro course. My anatomy text contained many many more details in the overlapping chapters. The online course materials are quite lacking. The accompanying CDROM is mostly useless. If the book is required in your respiratory care curriculum, that would not be a bad thing. It works.

Okay all of you aspiring RTs - you need this text. You're in college, so you need to save money. Used books are, of course, the way to go...

The difficult part is finding a good price from a reputable seller - that's where Amazon shines: Check the reviews.

My copy was in better condition than I had expected, at a great price and it was shipped fast, so, you might want to check this seller's inventory next time you're looking for books...

This book was very helpful. The diagrams were great! It was an easy read and presented the information in a way that made it easy to learn and remember. I would highly recommend this book. I have referenced it several times during my program to make sense of other books.
