From the Back Cover:

Running hurdles demands strength, stamina, and agility. To succeed, you must be healthy, and the various systems of the body must work together efficiently. In this book, The Human Body in Health and Disease, you can learn about how bones, muscles, and joints work, how the heart and lungs meet the muscles' oxygen demands, and how your brain directs or coordinates these activities. In short, you will come to understand the basic anatomy and physiology of your own body. You will also learn about the most common illnesses and diseases, their effects on body systems, and the basic principles involved in diagnosing and treating them. In the process you will develop a new vocabulary and a perspective that will enable you to make sense of the wealth of available information concerning new diseases, new drugs, and new medical technologies. Whether you are planning a future career in the health sciences or have an interest in better understanding your own body, this book should be your first step.
