[A]n authoritative introduction to human physiology. -- booknews.com[Four stars] Text on the left-hand page with informative diagrams, schematics, pictures, graphs etc, on the right-hand page...[makes] a definite advantage for students...provides a great way to review crucial and vital processes.--Doody's ReviewReviewer: A readerAs a student, I find this book invaluble around exam time. It has a concise and clear presentation, fantastic illustrations and good index, so that you can find everything just when you need it. Students, don't be fooled by its size, it's the best pre-clinical investment you'll make.Reviewer: A readerSmall, well illustrated. This is by far the most pain free and efficent way to pass physilogy exams as a medical student or for the MRCS.By Alexandra Grnvall (Lilla Edet, Sweden): I used this extraordinary book as an overview, study-guide and companion to physiology.Color Atlas of Physiology is concise and to the point, featuring some of the best, most descriptive illustrations of biochemical and physiological processes I have yet seen. The format - one page of illustrations alongside one page of brief explanatory texts - makes it perfect as an introduction to physiology and for reviewing the subject before an exam.
