The purpose of this textbook is to provide students with the necessary landmarks to accomplish their task—to understand the big picture of human anatomy in the context of health care, bypassing the minutia. The landmarks used to accomplish this task are text and illustrations. They are complete, yet concise and both figuratively and literally provide the “Big Picture” of human anatomy.
The format of the book is simple. Each page-spread consists of text on the left-hand page and associated illustrations on the right-hand page. In this way, students are able to grasp the big picture of individual anatomy principles in bite-sized pieces, a concept at a time.
• Approximately 450 full-color figures illustrate the essential anatomy.
• High-yield clinically relevant concepts throughout the text are indicated by an icon.
• Study questions and answers follow each section.
• A final examination is provided at the end of the text.
