Human Anatomy: A Very Short Introduction Paperback
by Leslie (Formerly Emeritus Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery, University of Liverpool, Seni Klenerman
Part of the Very Short Introductions series
A vast subject that includes a strange vocabulary and an apparent mass of facts, human anatomy can at first appear confusing and off-putting.
But the basic construction of the human body - the skeleton, the organs of the chest and abdomen, the nervous system, the head and neck with its sensory systems and anatomy for breathing and swallowing - is vital for anyone studying medicine, biology, and health studies.
In this Very Short Introduction Leslie Klenerman provides a clear, concise, and accessible introduction to the structure, function, and main systems of the human body, including a number of clear and simple illustrations to explain the key areas.
