Publisher Comments:

Visualizing Human Biology engages medical professionals to connect the science to their own lives through stunning visuals. It presents the important concepts of human biology as they relate to the world we live in. The role of the human in the environment is stressed throughout, ensuring that topics such as evolution, ecology, and chemistry are introduced in a non-threatening and logical fashion.The second edition includes revised art that helps make the concepts easier to understand, and additional visualizing features have been integrated throughout the chapters. The material has also been streamlined, making this a concise resource for medical professionals.

I'm currently taking Human Biology and I found this book very interesting. Makes you know more about your body and in general, all part of your body.
