The first edition of Clinically Oriented Anatomy, by Dr Keith Moore, appeared in 1980. The text continues to be one of the best volumes combining modern anatomy and clinical facts.

As the authors state in their preface, this fourth edition is indeed a major revision, and it is first rate. Embryology, anatomy of the abnormal, and normal anatomy blend in a satisfying final product, something that the student of the health professions will very much appreciate.
