Reviews - What do customers think about Netter's Atlas of Human Physiology (Netter Basic Science)?
Could use some improvement Apr 12, 2005
This book is not, as it claims to be, "Netter's" atlas of human physiology. A better title would be the "John A. Craig, J. Perkins and C. Machado, overseen by John T. Hansen and Bruce M. Koeppen, using some Netter plates that were not intended to explain physiology" atlas of physiology.
There are Netter plates in this book but they are either illustrating purely anatomical points, or else they have been "doctored" with lines, symbols, words etc. added by the other contributors, and definitely lacking the genius of Netter.
This book can be helpful, particularly because Physiology textbooks are notoriously bad when it comes to pictures. However, there are factual errors in it (e.g. in the section on respiratory physiology), and some of the plates do more to confuse than to explain (e.g. in the gastrointestinal section).
I don't know how Netter's family is handling the use of his name on books mostly produced by other people. It doesn't bother me that much, as long as the new authors stick to the spirit of Netter in their conception and execution of the graphics. These authors still could use a lot of improvement in that respect, before their book is worthy to carry Netter's name.
Netter does it again Aug 20, 2002
The ideal companion atlas for any Physiology course. A clear, concise and user-friendly atlas with a "big picture" approach to the study and review of major principles in human physiology. Each organ structure and function comes alive with 250 of Netter's beautifully rendered color drawings and schematics that enhance understanding of organ system physiology. Each chapter leads the learner from the important overview relationships of organ system physiolocy down to the tissue, cell and subcellular levels, Graphs, chards and schematics illustrate key concepts and summarize integrated principles with visual clarity.
