An easy to understand anatomy text book, with clear use of terminology and explanatory diagrams which is every medical students dream, and this can be found within the snazzy coverings of Gray’s Anatomy for Student’s. The strongest feature of this book is quite simply the way it’s been written. This is a brilliant resource for medical students as the text takes the reader from the basics slowly but then reaches the more detailed anatomy. The diagrams are excellent. Gray’s Anatomy for Student’s is excellent. It is well laid out, clear, with good use of colour and some really nice features. It is a great book that should be an essential on every medical students reading list, as it does make learning anatomy feel easy.

This textbook provides a different approach to the introduction and detailed study of human anatomy accompanied by a collection of detailed and very informative illustrations. Faculty teaching anatomy in different health related disciplines looking for alternatives to the current standard textbooks should seriously consider this new edition.
The editors are to be applauded for these particularly useful features as many anatomy books oftenneglect function and how many regions of the body, such asthe thorax and abdomen, are related. Where relevant,embryology is also covered.
The clinical relevance of topographical anatomy, togetherwith surface anatomy, is highlighted throughout. At theend of each chapter there are clinical scenarios and tenshort questions demonstrating clinical applications of
anatomy, allowing the readers to test and apply their knowledge.
Beautiful illustrations. Clinically orientated – lots of surface anatomy, lots of clinical cases, and well explained and annotated radiology cases as well! The excellent short chapter on imaging in the introduction is also very helpful and useful. This book is a really helpful resource for any medical student.
I particularly like the diagrams, which are clearly labelled, not cluttered, and helpfully coloured…this textbook is great. It is well-tailored to students, providing the anatomy information that we need to know. It gets a big ‘thumbs up’” – Medical Student, University of Oxford (review of previous edition) “…explains anatomy in a way that is easy to understand, but also puts the text in a clinical context along the way.The Interactive Surface Anatomy is very useful and well made – a great example of how Student Consult can provide teaching tools that simplifies complex subjects in a way no book can.
A user-friendly format, regional organization, and outstanding artwork make mastering anatomy remarkably easy.
