School Library Journal Review

Gr 70-Up These anatomical titles owe their genesis to the Visible Human Project. The illustrations, extrapolated from computer-generated digital autopsy reproductions, are exceptional in their clarity and dimension. They are also extraordinarily detailed; in fact, they supplement medical-school textbooks. Each book takes readers through its systems efficiently and straightforwardly. The texts are clear but leave questions about the intended audience. At times the books go into detail that may be beyond the scope and/or interest of students. The large print, generous margins and white space, and layout of each book make for an attractive package but one that may appeal primarily to middle-school students. The glossaries cannot possibly cover the plethora of medical terminology but are adequate. However, for libraries with extra resources, these volumes would make good secondary reference material. -Dona Ratterree, New York City Public Schools (c) Copyright 2010.
