The authors have strived to make anatomy and physiology "come alive" by using an engaging writing style to make it seem as if they are sitting next to students talking about the concepts.  Humor, where appropriate, and analogies to compare the human body to everyday things to which learners can relate have been interwoven throughout the text. Finally, special features have been added in a unique fashion tailored to the visual learning styles and relevant learning that today’s students require.
