With more than 200,000 copies sold, The Johns Hopkins Atlas of Human Functional Anatomy is a trusted and authoritative source of information about the human body for general readers and students at all levels. Now newly revised and expanded, the fourth edition offers more comprehensive coverage than ever. Included are:

• 226 color illustrations, depicting all organs and systems of the human body, by renowned medical artist Leon Schlossberg

• 29 chapters of descriptive text written by current and former faculty at one of the world's foremost medical institutions, the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine

• an index of plates and descriptions for quick identification of any structure, organ, or system

The fourth edition of the Atlas features seven new chapters and sixteen new plates, enhancing the treatment of the aorta, liver, thymus, breast, prostate, and hernias. Also new to this edition is a spectacularly detailed, two-page, full-color illustration of the interior of the male anatomy from head to thighs. As in previous editions, the description and explanation for each part of the anatomy are written by an expert in that particular field.

Reviews

Schlossberg's work gives new meaning to the word illustration... An excellent basic reference for functional anatomy.

Provides an easily understood introduction to the inner workings of the human body. With emphasis on function as well as structure, the beautifully illustrated guide maps anatomical systems and organs.

Originally composed for medical students, this thorough reference guide is basic enough to help lay readers understand how human organs work and what happens when they don't. Unlocking vertebrae and cutting off layers of skin, the numerous color illustrations are anything but pretty, but they capture, with detail rare in introductory works, the interconnecting functions that help the human body survive.

The illustrations—most in color—are scientifically accurate and artistically beautiful... The text is uniformly of high quality.

The artwork is first-class... A book which anyone with an interest in anatomy would be pleased to own.
