We inhabit it, we are it, and we are surrounded by 6.8 billion examples of it on the planet – the human body. Some parts of it are still mysteries to science and much is a mystery to the average person on the street. But we've come a long way from the sketches and diagrams drawn by the first anatomists in Ancient Greece.

Making full use of new medical procedures and imaging techniques, The Complete Human Body is the definitive guide to the development, form, function, and disorders of the human body, illustrated with unprecedented clarity by new computer-generated artworks and the latest medical and microscopic imaging. Exploring the body's form and function in greater depth than any other popular reference, from muscle structure and activity to motor pathways within the brain, The Complete Human Body will have great appeal to students and a broad range of healthcare professionals, as well as families. Includes an interactive DVD and website!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! This book goes hand in hand with The Human Brain Book by Rita Carter. Both excellent, easy to read and very interesting. The illustrations are well done and informing! The only disappointment was that I thought the DVD was going to be interactive as they had stated.
