Anatomy: A Crash Course teaches you everything you need to know about your own anatomy, its body parts, systems, fantastic functions and flaws.

The book is divided into four chapters, covering:

  • The head and neck
  • The chest
  • The abdominopelvic region
  • The back and limbs

Each chapter contains an overview and thirteen illustrated topics, each broken down into small, digestible chunks. ‘Gross anatomy’ depicts the features and function of the body part, while ‘Clinical anatomy’ reveals what happens when things go wrong. Finally, ‘Dissection’ provides the unusual and lesser-known secrets of our bodies. With an introduction to the history of anatomy, an illustrated timeline and biographies, plus feature spreads covering topics from the language of anatomy to electrochemical signalling, this is the perfect crash course for budding anatomists.
