“This book is illustrated with countless of detailed diagrams by Frank netter and it is detail, charm and clarity of these diagrams that is very much the strength of the book.”
Med Saint, January 2013
If the human body is your territory, this is your map.
I purchased this copy for use during my deployment to Afghanistan. It is minimally changed from the Hardback copy I bought at the beginning of med school back in 1990, with just a handful of new images/supplements which enhance the book, but one can never complain about the quality of images Frank Netter left us. When people stop by the department to borrow it(which is frequent), the common adjective, “wonderful” is most frequently espoused.
Quite simply the best anatomy book I know of, and as a radiologist, I familiar with many text that don’t begin to compare, and at its current price, a bargin which shouldn’t be passed by, as it has a place in every physician’s library.
I purchased the kindle edition after buying “Netter’s Clinical Anatomy 2nd edition”, which is also a valuable and very concise text. While the anatomical illustrations appear with astounding clarity on my kindle fire and my PC, there are many pages with “cannot display” messages saying, “There is video content at this location that is not currently supported for your device. The caption for this content is displayed below.” (PC).
However, this title also comes with the Elsevier Student Consult, which allows access to the text online and features extras which make this atlas a real winner. The Student Consult includes: an image library; clinical images; multiple-choice review questions; SAQs optimized for the iPad (I don’t have an iPad, so I haven’t accessed this feature); clinical pearls; clinical cases; Netter 3-D active anatomy video samples; Netter UNC dissection videos; Netter UNC dissection videos for the iPad; Drag and Drop exercises; Survival Guides; surgical procedures; imaging studies; sample pages from other Netter books; classical Chinese plates (of interest to me because of my background in Japanese medical translation); about (a description of the author); and related titles (advertising).
Reading the text online at Student Consult allows access to clear, well-written descriptions of what you need to remember beginning with “Study Aims” progressing to a Guide, which gives you the highlights of what to remember with outline explanations. It then proceeds to lay out “Facts and Hints” centering on anatomical and clinical points, which provide you with additional important information.
This atlas is looking to be a real winner in my review of anatomy. The Clinical Anatomy mentioned earlier is also another jewel. In my opinion, both of them are well worth the money.
I already had the book version, but, since I am always walking around with a bunch of very heavy books and use Netter as just a reference here and there, I decided to also get the Kindle version for my tablet. I love having it with me anywhere and it was very helpful to bring a plate up in class and/or while studying more advanced applied anatomy from other books.
