   Amazing book!
This book is loved. Detailed, easy to read and the illustrations make this book all worth it. The price is not bad at all for the amount of knowledge that one will gain by reading it. It was decided to get this before starting a nursing program and is absolutely perfect.
   Good reference book
If you have read a Dk book before, you know what you are going to get with this company. Perfect for people who are just starting out and extremely helpful to look back for advanced students. Detailed images and colorful diagrams make it also great for children. You could write books about the subjects that this book covers to fill library's with, so that they can only delve so deep. There are more advanced books on the subject that focuses better on different topics for someone more advanced, however you will be delighted to have this book on your shelf for schoolwork and for medical or academic purposes. In short, you 'll love it.
   Gorgeous book
A fantastic book packed with facts and even helped my teaching by showing me how things can be simply put!
   Very elementary book - hard to read
This book is appropriate for students ages 8 years old to 11 years old, but the format is very busy and difficult to read and comprehend. I was looking for an anatomy and physiology book with good contents that is well presented and this fails.
   informative but not attractive enough
It is a great book for children to learn how the body works. It is detailed and very informative. My kid says it is easy to read for him. But the problem is it's lack of questions that can lead children to keep reading and find the answers. It is not attractive enough for my 9 - year old. Since I bought it at a very good sale price, I still think it is a great deal.
   Clear and easy to understand.
Beautiful book at a great price. Much more affordable than the local bookseller. It is easy to understand with simple, clear illustrations. For the first time medical terminology student it is perfect.
   Great info, very smelly ink, fell apart
Information is great! Easy to read and understand, presented in a very colorful and engaging format. Negatives! This book stinks!!!! It has also fallen apart. Chunks of pages, about 100 in total, have fallen out just.
   I love the way this book explains things in a more ...
I love the way this book explains things in a more simple form than my actual book Anatomy! The photos also help! I saw this book at Barns and Noble and was 20$ there, but is a good place to check it out!
   Great read done with a very enjoyable to follow style.
Like an example of this is that it explains a cell with a great picture showing the nucleus, mitochondria, glycosomes, etc. The structure of the book is also very well done. Skin, muscles, cells, DNA, the heart, feeding the body, chemical balance, the mind, along with a lot of other things to help explain how our human bodies work. I have a much better understanding of how the body works after reading this book. Even better than the class in anatomy and physiology that I took in college a few years ago. I really think that class would have been easier if I had read it first.
   Well written and illustrated book!
Was looking for a health book and found one that explained things with print that a senior citizen could see and interesting illustrations that helped a person understand various conditions within different organs of the body. Example : The Eyes Illustration of the Eyeball, with macula, retina, blood vessels leading into the brain, etc. I bought a few of these books for Christmas gifts. Good work, Jane!
