From Library Journal
Not a guidebook but a visual diary of fetal development via computer imaging.
Copyright 2002 Reed Business Information, Inc.
Praise for Alexander Tsiaras and Anatomical Travelogue:
"A step into medicine's future."
"These images capture life and in their association with illness show it at its most mysterious and most vulnerable...A magical anatomy tour."
-The New York Times
"If there is to be an Audubon of the human form, Tsiaras can make rightful claim to the title."
-John Hockenberry, MSNBC
"A fascinating look at the inner workings of the human body."
"This enormous cache of digital information is being transformed in a provocative new method of visualizing--and thereby understanding."
"[Tsiaras] reworks data to dazzling effects."

However, be warned, based on my experience and others I have read here, there seems to have been some sort of manufacturing problem with it. The pages crackle as you turn them because they are pulling out of the white glue in the binding and will eventually fall out. I'm returning the book to Amazon for a replacement, but there seems to be a lot of problems with a lot of these books, so I'm not completely confident that the same thing won't happen with the replacement. So, you might not want to give it as a gift since a gift recipient might feel awkward trying to figure out how to return the faulty product.
Ordered it already twice as a present for friends.
