Anatomy is not simple. One has to "imagine" every anatomical detail in one's brain without actually seeing things in 3-D.
There are a lot of Netter's enthusiasts, but let me assure you that you have to see the art-work and beauty of this atlas.The drawings are PHENOMENAL and you dont get even 20 % quality of pics in those "Look inside this book" options on Thieme website or on Google book reviews and other sites.
The other good thing about this atlas is that gives an "overall" views for various systems eg arterial, venous systems for various systems. This atlas "gets close to the tree, but never loses the sight of the forest". And thats what you need when you are studying anatomy to be a good doctor-Never lose the perspective; Never forget the BIGGER picture.
I already have a Sobotta and I am going to buy the other two in the series (Neck and Internal Organs and General Anatomy and Musculoskeletal System). If I knew about this atlas I probably would have gone for it earlier (I still would have gone for Sobotta since that is a great one too). I have always seen Netter's around and I have never liked it. I think it is overrated and people cant spend on THREE atlas series but guys let me assure you---> this atlas is the REAL deal.
There are some descriptions as well as but that is superficial and still you have to read proper text book (eg Keith L Moore etc).
Another strength is the clinical correlates with regional anatomy which is really helpful for students .
I am planing to do a video review of this atlas comparing it will Sobotta since many people are not aware of these gems but till then!!!!
Best of Luck.
UPDATE OCTOBER 2012:
Two years later, I continue to admire the fantastic artwork of this atlas (I have all three volumes :-).
The drawings are breathtakingly detailed and impressive. Colour scheme is nice and subtle.
While studying neuroanatomy, I tried using illustrations from "Snell's Neuroanatomy", but that was clearly a mistake. Snell's neuroanatomy does have good descriptive text, but its illustrations are horrible (in general). Many drawings are meant to be 3-D but appear to be 2 D or some weird orientation which is neither 3D nor 2D. Net result: you get more confused.
Go to spinal cord's blood supply in Snell's , and then check out the corresponding drawings from Thieme Atlas. This is the best Atlas out there . A little bit of text in this atlas also adds to the enjoyment.
Simply go for this one as FIRST choice.
I prefer Netter's Head and Neck Anatomy for Dentistry, it's very detailed and much better for an ENT, Maxfax or Plastic surgeon, rather than a neurosurgeon.
