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.

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.
