Summary

The Ninth Edition of this best-selling text stands up to its excellent reputation. Built on the strong features of previous editions, the new edition uses a systemic approach to normal and abnormal anatomy and physiology, basic microbiology, and chemistry. Written in a clear, concise style, the entire text has been updated, especially information regarding clinical advances. Information on aging and its effects on each body system has also been included. Most of the artwork has been revised for clarity and labeling has been enhanced; many new illustrations have been added and information is presented in smaller segments to make it easily digestible.
