This is essentially a textbook of regional human anatomy. It is not intended to present applied anatomy in the usual meaning of surgical anatomy. Instead, the applications of anatomic knowledge to medicine and surgery are systematically pointed out. Embryologic, phylogenetic, and physiological phenomena are stressed if helpful to the understanding of anatomic structure. The author has avoided presenting minutiae unless necessary for the understanding of anatomic principles. The text is clear and to the point, and the illustrations are generally good.
