Book News Annotation:
Tailored for students, this edition of the classic Gray's (which is cited in Brandon Hill) contains 1,000 of the original color illustrations along with 300 photographs and radiological images. The student edition is one-third shorter than the edition for clinicians (ISBN 0-443-06676-0). Organization is by region, beginning with the back because it is often the initial area dissected by students and is somewhat less complicated than the regions that follow: thorax, abdomen, pelvis and perineum, lower limb, upper limb, and head and neck. Access to the online version is included, allowing for advanced searches and interaction with the images and exercises.
