Review:

This is the best anatomy text that money can buy.

Clinically Oriented Anatomy is the run away winner in the anatomy stakes and has been for several years. It is the only textbook that has the answers to all of the questions in the workbooks and for that reason alone it should be your book of choice.

It just wouldn't be me if I couldn't find something to criticise about a book so here goes. This is a difficult book to navigate your way around, and although the information is all in there, finding it can be a different matter. Furthermore, a truly complete anatomy text should have lots of atlas-style photos showing what things look like in real life, rather than in a neat little diagram.

Having said this, these are minor points, don't think that there's any real reason not to buy this book, it is easily better than the others... it's only a shame that the medical school push Principles Of Anatomy And Physiology on everyone.
