Dear Students:
I am both honored and privileged to teach you A&P. To me, you are the most important people on earth. You are posterity. You are the reason a teacher exists. My primary goal is to educate you. I want you to be able to understand, appreciate, respect, and revere life and its processes. Work with me. Give me a chance to open your mind to new and fascinating ideas about living things. You WILL learn A&P after reading my book! My book is presented in two volumes. Both read like a novel and comprise a uniquely different, full-course, in-depth, comprehensive A&P textbook using unparalleled learning examples. They are a consequence of the total me, not just the professional me. Using this approach I have tried to eliminate that barrier between student and professor that I think prevents most students from wanting to learn, as opposed to having to learn. You are going to be tutored by me, "personally". My books integrate the typical lab coverage of other A&P courses. I approach the subject from a function to structure, rather than structure to function, perspective.
CONTENTS FOR VOLUME 1
: My Teaching Approach and Other Basic Information; Some Basic Biology (Story: Car-truck crash=survivors); Membranes and Glands (Story: I hate shoes! Any hope for sensory Nirvana?); Skeletal System (Stories: My cross-continent bicycle trip/The Gossamer Condor challenges / Birds of Prey); Muscle System (Story: Olympic Athletes and Dancers); Nervous System (Story: Tabinid flies: beautifully designed, but I still won!); Sense Receptors (Story: Sailboat in Pacific, earthworm pain, abortion. Knowing our world); Endocrine System (Story: Who's at the Door? Come in?)
CONTENTS FOR VOLUME 2
: Circulatory System (Story: Waking to the clock radio); Immunology and the Lymphatic System (Story: How to die. Death IS life); The Respiratory System (Story: Aspirated bug on my bicycle trip); The Digestive System (Story: Thanksgiving dinner. Where does all that food really go?); The Urinary System (Story: My dog and the "fire-hydrant". I'm absolutely amazed!); The Reproductive System (Story: "Have you ever really loved a woman?"); Fluid, Electrolyte, and pH Balance (Story: Eating crabs, lobsters, etc.); Book Summary/Epilogue: What we have accomplished.

From the Inside Flap:

I'LL BET YOU CAN'T ANSWER THESE QUESTIONS!
What is a "male"/a "female"?
Why does the female, not the male, of most species (from fungi and mosses, through mammals, including humans) carry the young?
How many ribs are there in the human male/The human female?
T/F. Chronologically, sexual reproduction precedes asexual reproduction.
Discuss the following: "Secondary Sex Organs" might legitimately include the legs and stomach of an organism.
Discuss the following: Biologically, having one grand offspring is defined as being more successful than having 10 offspring.
Why are human noses shaped as they are?
What is a "lung"?
Does "digestion" begin in the mouth?
What do teeth do?
What is the primary function of the stomach?
Define "Digestion". T/F: The large intestine is not involved in digestion.
Can you eat and drink while standing on your head?
Discuss the following: Cattle are simply "lawn-mowers" for bacteria.
T/F: The lumens of both the nephron and alimentary canal are outside the body, i.e. not part of the body.
Osmosis takes place INTO the HYPERTONIC solution FROM the HYPOTONIC solution.
How are the zig-zag flight - pattern of the house fly, the forked tongue of the snake, spraying your flowers with the hose, your two eyes, and lawns related?
Why is your heart shaped as it is?
Why are your organs located where they are in your body? Why not some other arrangement for them in your body?

From the Back Cover:

-Essentially, you are going to be tutored by me, personally.

-I stop often to ask if you understand my presentation.

-I use simple line sketches, as I would do during a tutoring session.

-Memorize when necessary, of course. Logic, however, should not be    memorized. I will teach you how to think your way to    understanding, and be confident in what you have     learned.

-My book INTEGRATES multiple approaches to the typical lab coverage of     other A&P courses.    

-I approach the subject from a function to structure, rather than structure     to function, perspective.

-My book has a "Book Summary". Traditionally textbooks just
    end ... period.

Most significantly, I look forward to teaching you.
