Summary

Principles of Anatomy and Physiologyis designed to help students develop a basic understanding of the concepts of anatomy and physiology without overwhelming them with chatty anecdotes or in-depth coverage that may be too detailed for their needs. The Tate text features realistic and beautifully rendered figures, clear, straight-forward writing, and an emphasis on clinical material. So how is this new textbook different? Explanations have just the right amount of detail, and therefore are shorter, with usually only one example instead of two or three; there are less boxed readings; other texts use several complex figures to illustrate many conceptsTate uses less, but more efficient, art. The result is a shorter, simplified textbook thatcovers all of the major points found in more lengthy texts, but is easier to read and more economical in price.
