Whether you’re a student of medicine or of the fine arts, you’ll want to know how the human body works. Pocket Anatomy uses the beautiful illustrations from the original, classic Gray’s Anatomy and combines them with an updated text that gives you all the knowledge you need in an accessible form.

(front flap)

Based on Gray’s Anatomy, the classic reference volume used by medical and allied health students around the world, Pocket Anatomy makes a handy reference source both for artists and students in medicine-related fields. Featuring the fine illustrations found in the original, this new book presents a fresher, more accessible text that explains in lay terms exactly how the hip bone is connected to the thigh bone. Pocket Anatomy is organized and presented so that non-specialist readers can understand both text and illustrations. Each bone joint and muscle group is shown from several angles and poses. Features 350 color illustrations.
