Organ structure and function come alive with 282 of Dr. Netter’s beautifully rendered color drawings and schematics. Each chapter progresses from the important overview relationships of organ system physiology down to the tissue, cellular, and subcellular levels.
Excellent. Item was delicered as promised and described correctly!
This book is not, as it claims to be, “Netter’s” atlas of human physiology. A better title would be the “John A. Craig, J. Perkins and C. Machado, overseen by John T. Hansen and Bruce M. Koeppen, using some Netter plates that were not intended to explain physiology” atlas of physiology.
There are Netter plates in this book but they are either illustrating purely anatomical points, or else they have been “doctored” with lines, symbols, words etc. added by the other contributors, and definitely lacking the genius of Netter.
This book can be helpful, particularly because Physiology textbooks are notoriously bad when it comes to pictures. However, there are factual errors in it (e.g. in the section on respiratory physiology), and some of the plates do more to confuse than to explain (e.g. in the gastrointestinal section).
I don’t know how Netter’s family is handling the use of his name on books mostly produced by other people. It doesn’t bother me that much, as long as the new authors stick to the spirit of Netter in their conception and execution of the graphics. These authors still could use a lot of improvement in that respect, before their book is worthy to carry Netter’s name.
