A uniquely engaging textbook of human anatomy & physiology.
ANATOMY & PHYSIOLOGY: THE UNITY OF FORM AND FUNCTION is a college textbook written primarily for nursing and allied health majors. Unlike others in this field, it takes a more humanistic approach to the subject by including poignant biographical and historical vignettes that bring life to the science. While other anatomy and physiology texts pay little regard to the evolutionary origins of human form and function, this book includes evolutionary interpretations of topics ranging from bipedalism to the sweet tooth, from hypertension to menopause. Illustrated by a team of medical illustrators at the Observatory Group of Cincinnati, this book sets a new standard for medical illustration at the undergraduate level. Even in its first three weeks on the market, this book had several colleges and universities dropping other leading textbooks in midcourse and ordering this in their place. Check it out for yourself and see why.
Kenneth S. Saladin is a full professor at Georgia College and State University. He obtained his B.S. degree in Zoology from Michigan State University and his Ph.D. in Biological Sciences from Florida State University. He has taught both undergraduate and graduate courses for over twenty years.
