    It covers the basics but seems like something you might get in a high school health class.

    I read this book without any formal physiology background (indeed I was a perfect dummy in Anatomy and Physiology) and this book definitely lived up to its name.

    The market is not very kind to layman interested in learning new subjects.

The Dummies series takes the other end of the spectrum, condescendingly viewing readers as dummies. Reading about anatomy and physiology is interesting insofar as it explains how and why our body succeed to function with such amazing mechanisms. Sometimes I wonder that we ask the wrong question. Instead focusing on why we get sick and die, we should focus on why we can live and survive so long. Anatomy and Physiology for Dummies is a serviceable overview of this complex subject. Materials are obviously diluted but generally more accessible than the Very Short Introductions series. One flaw is the simplistic diagrams which lack labelings and names of the body parts the main body refers to. I need another atlas of body to supplement them.

    Took a while but then also finished it due to I took an Anatomy and Physiology class just last semester and went over all this stuff and more but all and all great read if you want a basic over view of the human body and how it works.

    I read most of this, but kinda skimmed through, and would just look up certain things. I didn't sit and read the whole thing.

    This book was okay. Some of the information didn't seem to fit with the basic idea of the book.
