From School Library Journal:

Grade 9 Up-- There has long been a need for a solid, single volume work on human anatomy and physiology to update Isaac Asimov's The Human Body (Houghton, 1963; o.p.). This may do it. As with others in the series, it begins by offering a historical perspective, this time as a brief outline of the various scientists and discoveries that have led to our current understanding of the functions of the body. From there, the workings of the body are divided by systems; each is examined and explained, with a detailed, step-by-step description of how each process works. Finally, a short chapter titled "The Body of the Future" touches on some of the current developments in medical practice and technology. This is not a book to be read through, but rather to be dipped into for research. The writing is clinical, precise, and sometimes complicated, requiring careful, multiple readings for full understanding. The book is strictly a presentation of facts; there are no anecdotes or case studies to vary the tone. Terminology is italicized and defined within the text. A limited glossary and a full index are appended. Black-and-white photos and diagrams provide adequate illustrations. --Denise L. Moll, Lone Pine Elementary School, West Bloomfield, MI
