Finally, a medical terminology text that truly immerses readers within the language of medicine, so that students can apply their vocabulary within a real-world context. As opposed to fostering rote memorization, this book engages students in an interactive learning experience that will give them a vital tool and inspire them to become true consumers of medical language. The goal is to connect with readers, to engage their visual auditory and kinesthetic senses, to stimulate them, and fuel their complete understanding of the topic. As students engage in this multi-sensory experience within these pages, they should remember that we are not encouraging them to merely discover, learn, know, or even understand, the information. Instead we want readers to live it! We want them to dig in, dive in, and become immersed!

understand. –Karin Sherrill,

I LOVE integrating the word building into each chapter.
I think it will make the word building much more relevant
to students. –Tricia Berry,
I have students ranging in age from 18 to 50s. It would be
hard to find a writing style to fit them all, but I feel this book
would do the job. –Judy Anderson,
Coastal Carolina Community College
The illustrations and photos are awesome. –Cynthia Thompson,
Alamance Community College
The author takes the medical terminology textbook up
another level. –James Hudacek,
Lorain County Community College
It is geared to the whole person rather than just a clinical
approach to anatomy and physiology. It’s the “rest of the
story” that adds the interest and gives depth.
–Juanita R. Bryant,
Cabrillo College and Sierra College
Excellent book. –Paula Hagstrom,
Ferris State University
The wide diversity of subjects in the photos, and the
excellent diversity of artwork was way beyond my
expectations. Most books do not use enough visuals to
break up the written word, but I think this text is generous
in the use of color and visuals. –Susan Buboltz ,
Madison Area Technical College
Exactly what we were looking for.
–Ruth Ann O’Brien,

Undoubtedly, this IS one of the BEST medical terminology

concept of any other medical terminology book I have
seen in 10 years.

You truly have taken into account what is important to the
learner in today’s society.
