Student nurse Kumiko has just flunked her physiology exam and has one last shot at passing her makeup test. Lucky for her, newbie health science professor Kaisei needs a guinea pig for his physiology lectures.
You’ll also gain insight into medical procedures like electrocardiograms, blood pressure tests, spirograms, and more.
Whether you’re cramming for a test like Kumiko or just want a refresher, The Manga Guide to Physiology is your fun, cartoon guide to the human body.
I’ve read several of these and recommended them to my students who don’t really do as well with the traditional textbooks as a form of learning. The problem is, they tend to be too simplistic in some areas and too advanced in others for the classes I teach, but, if it draws any of them in and gets them interested to learn more, it will have done the job.
I asked lightheartedly on Twitter “Is there something wrong in getting medical advice from a Manga comic book?” because I have found the information in The Manga Guide to Physiology to be more complete and understandable than many medical websites. Of course the book should not replace a medical professional but it does give a very comprehensive look at the workings of the human body.
And, of course, the format of the book (Manga comic book with an interesting story line and great illustrations) makes it more readable than a textbook. I found myself saying “Just one more chapter” which would never have been the case in a typical physiology text book.
Like the other Manga guides the information is presented using young characters involved in something to keep your interest. In The Manga Guide to Physiology a Nursing School freshman named Kumiko needs to pass a test on the human body in order to compete in the campus marathon which she is simultaneously training for. She is tutored by a young professor who turns out to be someone unexpected.
Don’t be fooled and think that because of this background story the information is fluff. The information presented is detailed but presented in a clear manner with examples that will make you understand the subject rather than help you memorize facts. In addition there is always an “Even More About…” section that gets into more details for those who want it.
