From the time that I bought this textbook, anatomy became a much easier task for me. The reason mostly has to do with the way the figures are drawn; it's a great atlas in making you learn the structures and having them be very well differentiated, It's a great resource if you are a visual learner too.

Review of The Human Anatomy Atlas  September 8, 2010
Rating StarRating StarRating StarRating StarRating Star

Good book to follow my anatomy class. Although not the best atlas I've ever used, it laid out the human body quite well. I learned a lot about the human body that honestly freaks me out a little. I would recommend this book to anyone who is studying human anatomy or would like to learn more about the human body.
