The present edition of this popular book for nurses continues to present the essentials of anatomy and physiology in a lucid, easily understood manner. Much material has been rewritten, revised, and reset. Among other changes the section on the nervous system has been condensed into two chapters, one dealing with the peripheral (including the autonomic) and the other with the central nervous system. The chapter dealing with the endocrine system has been completely recast. The addition of new illustrations serves to facilitate assimilation of text material. Situations, with relevant questions, follow each chapter. Nursing students should find this book a real aid.
