This book includes 10 lectures in a light, entertaining style, with each "lecture" building on the previous one - making it easy for the reader to comprehend the vastly complicated functions of the circulatory system.

From the Back Cover:

Not just another book on circulatory system physiology, this book includes 10 "lectures" that are presented in a light, entertaining style, with each lecture building on the previous one—making it easy for the reader to comprehend the vastly complicated functions of the circulatory system.

The author succeeds in telling a clear, interesting story. The length of the story has intentionally been kept short; it is neither exhaustively complete nor over-simplified. The story is enriched by details about basic biologic mechanisms and clever ways nature has solved a problem or achieved a result.

This book will be a tremendous resource for the student of health science to help him or her understand and organize the topic; the established professional will appreciate the clarity and simplicity of the basic information that is sometimes dimmed by a plethora of details; and the general reader will satisfy his or her curiosity about the circulatory system and how it sustains life.

How the Immune System Works by Lauren Sompayrac, PhD

Dr. Sompayrac combines both traits in this innovative new book on immunology in which he teaches the state of the art by making key concepts easy and fun to understand." – Professor of Medicine, Microbiology and Immunology University of Colorado Health Sciences Center
