Item description for The Human Body (An Illustrated Guide to Its Structure, Function, and Disorders) by DK Publishing, Tony Smith & Charles B. Clayman...

Outline ReviewIt's big, it's colorful, and it's got everything from your gallbladder and heart to your muscles, bones, blood and brain. Clear and helpful diagrams detail conditions from acne to malignant melanoma. This is a reassuring, easily understood text on our bodies as they exist in their ideal state, as well as common disorders and treatments. It's nice to brush up on anatomy without tests to sweat, but it's also great to have a doctor on your shelf to dispel those 3 a.m. certainties of imminent disease and doom.

Product Description
Filled with facts about every system and component and valuable information about problems, diagnostic techniques, treatments, and surgical procedures, a unique visual approach to understanding the human body emphasizes the ways individual parts of the body work together.

Promise Angels is dedicated to bringing you great books at great prices. Whether you read for entertainment, to learn, or for literacy - you will find what you want at!

Reviews - What do customers think about The Human Body (An Illustrated Guide to Its Structure, Function, and Disorders)?

The Human Body  Oct 13, 2007
I ordered a human body book as shown above but received a book in same title but in different cover with a single human body only. I am not sure they are the same book with same illustration and description although the book talks about human body. Therefore, I don't think it is approrpriate for me to give a review on the book that I received.
One of the best book I have ever bought.  May 26, 2007
The book is well organized, language is simple, all pictures are well worked on and includes the most of the things that ordinary people want to know. 'Perfect' is the best word to decribe it.
The Human Body (An Illustrated Guide to its Structure, Function, and Disorders)  Jan 13, 2007
A very good book for the lay-person to use as a reference to the human body, its structure, and functionality. The illustrations significantly help as aid to understanding. In fact, it was the many illustrations of the book that sold me on it.
Great reference  Jan 13, 2007
The pictures and information in this book are phenomenal~! Great reference book to have on the shelf.
Illustrated Guide to the Human Body  Mar 18, 2006
If you wish to help young children 7 yrs and up to understand and appreciate the human body this book will help them.
