about this item

"Ken Saladin's penchant for writing began early. For his 10th-grade biology class, he wrote a 318-page monograph on hydras with 53 original India ink drawings and 10 original photomicrographs. We at McGraw-Hill think of this as Ken's "first book." At a young age, Ken already was developing his technical writing style, research habits, and illustration skills. Ken served as an A&P textbook reviewer and testbank writer for several years and then embarked on his first book for McGraw-Hill in 1993. He published the first edition of Anatomy and Physiology: The Unity of Form and Function in 1997 and his first edition of Human Anatomy in 2004. The story continues with Human Anatomy, fourth edition. The Fourth Edition--What's New? New Organization New Science New Writing New Balance New Photographs New Art New Pedagogy A Storytelling Writing Style Innovative Perspectives Fresh Analogies Artwork That Piques Interest and Clarifies Ideas Vivid Illustrations Process Figures Orientation Tools The Art of Teaching--Pedagogical Features Chapters Laid Out for Preview and Review The Bookends of Knowledge Vocabulary Building Desktop Experiments elf-Assessment Tools Making It Relevant Saladin's Human Anatomy is more than a description of body structure. It is a story that weaves together basic science, clinical applications, the history of medicine, and the evolutionary basis of human structure. Saladin combines this humanistic perspective with vibrant photos and art to convey the beauty and excitement of the subject to beginning students"--
