Anatomy: A Crash Course takes you on a journey through the human body, from the dissection of each body part to the operation of the different systems linking them together. The book is divided into four chapters, covering: the head and neck; the chest; the abdominopelvic region; and the back and limbs. Each chapter contains an overview and thirteen illustrated topics, each broken down into small, digestible chunks. ‘Gross anatomy’ depicts the features and function of the body part, while ‘Clinical anatomy’ reveals what happens when things go wrong. Finally, ‘Anatomy trivia’ provides the unusual and lesser-known secrets of our bodies. With an introduction to the history of anatomy, an illustrated timeline and biographies, plus feature spreads covering topics from the language of anatomy to electrochemical signalling, this is the perfect crash course for budding anatomists.
