Publisher's Description

The Complete Human Body, 2nd Edition is the definitive illustrated guide to the human body as we know it today, from its development and form to its functions and disorders. Mysteries remain, but we have come a long way since the sketches and diagrams of the first anatomists in Ancient Greece.

Now updated and expanded to include more information than before, The Complete Human Body, 2nd Edition explores the body's forms and functions in greater depth than any other popular reference, from muscle structure and activity to motor pathways within the brain. Illustrated with unprecedented clarity by computer-generated artworks and the latest medical and microscopic imaging, this comprehensive reference shows anatomical structures and bodily processes in incredible detail.

We inhabit it, we are it, and we are surrounded by 7.2 billion examples of it on the planet — the human body. The Complete Human Body, 2nd Edition is your "access all areas" pass.
