In this book, the basic biology of man is discussed in an interesting and factually correct manner. After describing the cells, the tissues of the body, and the basic structure and organization of the body, the author discusses in turn the locomotor apparatus and the digestive, circulatory, respiratory, urinary, and reproductive systems. A few simple diagrams illustrate the text, and the use of technical terms has been avoided whenever possible. This book can be recommended to the layman as a source of information relating to the anatomy and physiology of the human body.
