This edition gives evidence of intensive revision. More space has been devoted to physiology without undue elaboration of experimental detail. The introduction of B N A terminology is also an, advance. The material is intended chiefly for students of the practical arts—nursing, physical education, physical therapy and occupational therapy. The author's extensive experience in teaching anatomy and physiology is reflected in the manner of presentation, choice of data and general organization. Basic and essential facts concerning structure and functions of the body are presented in a concise, orderly and logical sequence. Because the students for whom this textbook was intended usually do not have the benefit of dissection, the author has introduced numerous illustrations. The book is authoritative and especially well organized.
