Description:Dr. von Hippel is the author of five books, all of which he has graciously agreed to let Textbook Revolution host. In this book, he demystifies anatomy and physiology for the struggling medical student. Using clear language and adding plenty of anecdotes from his own experience as a thoracic surgeon, this book should be a welcome relief from the average academic tome.

The book starts with the Big Bang, moves through overviews of chemistry, physics, and biology, and then devotes a chapter to each of the body’s systems, with chapter titles like “Why Muscles?” and “Your Blood.” At 576 pages, it covers pretty much everything. Note that there are no pictures or diagrams. If you need illustrations, try "Wheeless’ Textbook of Orthopedics" ('_Textbook_of_Orthopaedics).

Readers should note that the this book has certain political and religious viewpoints regarding evolution. The opinions of the author are his own and are not representative of the opinions of Textbook Revolution. We are hosting this book as a community service.
