"The book covers all aspects of the physiology of the human body. The physiology of the nervous system is presented early in the book, which is advisable since the nervous system plays a significant role in the function of the other body systems. " "A major strength is the regular revision, which provides as up-to-date information as possible in a book of this type." "...it is an excellent source of current and complete information on medical physiology." Doody's 20030616
