Principles of Anatomy & Physiology + Wiley E-Text. The authors of the book, Tortora & Derrickson try their best to explain difficult concepts to the reader in a way that isn't super complex, but relatively reasonable.

Gerard J. Tortora is Professor of Biology and former Biology Coordinator at Bergen Community College in Paramus, New Jersey, where he teaches human anatomy and physiology as well as microbi- ology. He received his bachelor's degree in biology from Fairleigh Dickinson University and his mas- ter's degree in science education from Montclair State College.

Tortora's is sufficient if you want to combine anatomy and physiology in one textbook

Bryan Derrickson of Valencia Community College in Orlando, Florida joins Jerry Tortora as a co-author, bringing his background and expertise in physiology in balance with Jerry's focus on anatomy. Tortora's is sufficient if you want to combine anatomy and physiology in one textbook. But if you go with a separate anatomy textbook, I think Moore's is great. Although if you decide on Moore, it might be better to get Baby Moore which is less detailed.

Written and superbly illustrated for two-term, introductory Anatomy and Physiology students, this text offers a rich and complete teaching and learning environment.

As a Nursing student, you need to take a mandatory Anatomy and physiology course to actively pursue in the study of Nursing. This class being one of the hardest "weed out" classes that Nursing students need to take, we need a book to show what the body does, how it works, and why. Principles of Anatomy and Physiology 14e binder edition does exactly this. Reading this book has helped me develop an understanding for Human Anatomy and Physiology. With the in depth explanations of processes the body undergoes, thought out thorough definitions, and diagrams, pictures and tables to make connections to the readings; all have yet to cease to impress me as I continue to read the book. This binder version is more affordable than the hard copy and comes with the same quality work inside. I recommend getting a 3 inch binder along with the purchase to keep it in great condition throughout the usage of this book. This is a GREAT BOOK and I recommend it to anyone interested in Anatomy and Physiology of the Human body.
Having perused the first volume - "Principles of Anatomy and Physiology: Organization, Support and Movement, and Control Systems of the Human Body" - I'm quite impressed. The illustrations and photographs are bountiful, having the appearance of clarity. I'm eager to begin studying! The contents are as follows:

1 An Introduction to the Human Body
2 The Chemical Level of Organization
3 The Cellular Level of Organization
4 The Tissue Level of Organization
5 The Integumentary System
6 The Skeletal System: Bone Tissue
7 The Skeletal System: The Axial Skeleton
8 The Skeletal System: The Appendicular Skeleton
9 Joints
10 Muscular Tissue
11 The Muscular System
12 Nervous Tissue
13 The Spinal Cord and Spinal Nerves
14 The Brain and Cranial Nerves
15 The Autonomic Nervous System
16 Sensory, Motor, and Integrative Systems
17 The Special Senses
18 The Endocrine System

Unfortunately, the second volume was not included with this purchase. Yes, I had read other reviews indicating the same omission, but I was hoping my seller would be that person of integrity who would send both books, as nowhere was it indicated that I was only buying the first of two volumes . . . no such luck.

Fortunately, I found the second volume by searching for the textbook's title - and including "volume 2" in the search - and have just now ordered "Principles of Anatomy and Physiology: Maintenance and Continuity of the Human Body".

The chapters in volume two are:

19 The Cardiovascular System: The Blood
20 The Cardiovascular System: The Heart
21 The Cardiovascular System: Blood Vessels and Hemodynamics
22 The Lymphatic System and Immunity
23 The Respiratory System
24 The Digestive System
25 Metabolism and Nutrition
26 The Urinary System
27 Fluid, Electrolyte, and Acid-Base Homeostasis
28 The Reproductive Systems
29 Development and Inheritance

I believe that, despite the order-related issue, I will be grateful to have both volumes by Tortora and Derrickson. My first impression is that the books will provide excellent reference material.
I bought this book when I was halfway through my semester of Anatomy and Physiology 1 because I opted for only the online version of the newer book, due to cost. I decided to give this book a shot because it was only $20!!! Totally worth the money. The book is more or less exactly the same as the newer edition. With the exception of a couple chapters that were added to the other book, the words in this book are verbatim. It is well worth the $20 to buy this book even if it's just for a reference to sit on your shelf. They don't change enough things in one years time to completely discount this edition. Came quickly and was in good condition.
This is my first A&P book, and I've not enjoyed it as much as I would've liked. I would prefer to receive information in a way that starts at a high level, then breaks down that information in a consecutive way, breaking things down more and more until we get to low level information. This book gives very brief overview of each section, then dives directly to the bottom of the ocean where you're stuck in a completely alien environment, with a whole new language to describe every minute thing you observe. This didn't work for me.

I had to get EZ-Anatomy and Physiology to support my need for a high level view, and now I only use the Tortora book for the excellent illustrations and the boxed lists of things to remember. I won't read it any longer. It just confused the hell out of me and makes me feel like I'm drowning.
AH! This is the ultimate fear I have renting books. It is extremely damaged. It's only holding together due to a tape layer on the binding. Some of the pages are glued in the center to the front cover preventing them from being opened. The cover doesn't fit over the back of the book's pages. Very disappointed.
I thought this was a well organized and put together book. It is easy to read and follow. While technical, the author presents the material in a direct and precise manner. The drawing in the book were a big help in glass. detailed and labeled clearly, I had no trouble understanding the material for class. The atlas of the skeleton is kind of delicate. other than that, this is a fine set.
