Your Remarkable Anatomy An Overview for Health Professionals, Students, And the General Public.
by Dr Don Lowell Fisher
“This book was obviously written by a person who has a fascination and respect for the workings of the human body. Anybody who is fascinated with the human body or has a question about it will find this book quite helpful.
“This book would be helpful for anyone taking Gross Anatomy. In addition, possibly, this book should be sent with an admissions packet for those entering medical school. Then, Gross Anatomy would be considerably easier.”
–Terri L. Johnson, M.D., Senior Staff Physician, Dept. of Pathology, Henry Ford Hospital, Detroit, MI
