Book on the Human Anatomy

Postby bodom » Sun May 29, 2011 5:48 pm

I'm looking for a book on the human anatomy, specifically a hardcover so that I can carry with me, please no websites. I'm also looking for something that contains pictures of real organs, not just cartoon diagrams. Maybe any dhamma related anatomy books anyone knows of? Any recommendations would be appreciated.

May I suggest for the neuro-musculo-skeletal component; iirc organs also receive attention.

That should be a nice method to contemplate the :quote: ugliness and transitoriness of the human body. :thumbsup:

Hi Bodom

The iconic reference is "Gray's Anatomy"
http://www.amazon.com/Grays-Atlas-Anato ... 581&sr=1-6

But there are other reference works as well including anatomy texts that contain photographs rather than illustrations. I recommend that you visit your local academic bookshop or state reference library to have a look at what's available and what suits your purpose and budget.
kind regards

Ben
