After the functions of each system are explored, the sections end with system abnormality relating to injury, disease, and malfunction. Starting at the cellular-level then moving to the development, and eventual decline of the body, "The Human Body" provides a solid, thorough guild-book about the human body bringing together the full scientific explanation of the body's natural processes, capabilities, susceptibilities, and its amazing functions as an organic machine!
This book can be used as a study guild or for knowledge acquisition, your choice. The information is easy to understand and the illustration serves as a perfect auxiliary for memorization. To me, it this is the perfect source of information to reference from and apply.
I would absolutely love to give this book a five-star rating. However, there was a failure on the part of the authors to perform a careful proofread before this book went to print. There are quite a few gramatical errors and in some of the illustrations the leader lines point to the wrong structures, which can cause confusion for the reader or student of human anatomy.
I discovered this new edition at my local library in their new books section a few weeks ago. The binding was already coming apart, though it had not been on the shelf long.
I am hoping that the binding on the copy I purchased will hold up better.
This book has some amazing high quality images. If you're as big of a nerd as I am, seeing a massive 2 page digital image of an axion, or a detailed look at muscle fiber is breath taking. While there are a few incorrect facts and a few mislabeled body parts (the inner ear bones come to mind) I've heard these were corrected on newer prints.
Even if you're not a nerd, the images are amazing and should grab the attention and fascination of anyone with an even passing curiosity about the human body. I hope DK continues to make books like this (I'm thinking a cellular biology book with this detail would be amazing!), and look forward to purchasing the Human Brain Book.
