"I think it'd be a brilliant book for anyone beginning nursing or any allied health profession course come to that. A great introduction to absolutely everything!" Senior lecturer, Birmingham City University
"I have to say everything about the book is excellent, from the layout, the clear concise text, the brilliant illustrations and the ease of using the website.
Health professionals should find this book an invaluable resource, I just wish it had been published when I was training." Senior sister, Guys' and St Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust
"It has really enhanced my studying and allowed me to enjoy using this book as a study source. As a student, it can be so daunting to use A&P books to aid studying as I personally spend so much time trying to mentally translate text into an alternative which makes more sense.
I also feel that the balance [between accessibility and authoritativeness] achieved within this book also replicates the balance demonstrated and expected by my university." Student, Robert Gordon University
"I find the illustrations a particularly effective aspect of this text as they succinctly illustrate certain anatomical and physiological aspects which can be difficult to visualise and explain via words.
This text is written in an accessible and succinct way, allowing students to learn the key aspects of anatomy and physiology without getting bogged down in superfluous explanations, bolstered by its fantastic use of graphical aids." Student, Edge Hill University
"Such an excellent book. As a third year even I find it a great understanding level. Love the comments around neonatal/child. I havent seen that in another book other than my child a&p books! I find this such a useful resource and easy to follow and a thoroughly enjoyable book!" Student, UCLan
