Not a mere atlas (as the title might suggest) but a compendium of colored and labeled illustrations with extensive descriptions. I wouldn’t recommend this book as a first text in anatomy and physiology, but I think it is an excellent supplemental or review text.
The seller greatly exceeded my expectations. The book arrived in a very timely manner, and it is in almost perfect condition. I got a really good deal on the book plus the access code, which is very important to me. I saved a whole lot of money compared to going to my university bookstore, and I couldn't ask for much else. Great experience.
This book is excellent for people who are literally dependent on learning visually. Personally I prefer an even mixture of both, but this is the book that my online A&P class is using. I have the regular Fundamentals of A&P which I prefer to this. Pictures are great, but I need a good explanation as well and the "Visual" version just doesn't provide that in my opinion.
Otherwise, the pictures and diagrams that are in the book are great and very to the point.
