Here's a fine general reference volume that will be equally at home on the family bookshelf and in school libraries. Scientifically accurate full-color illustrations on virtually every page show the human body and all its parts. A clear, concise text avoids technical medical jargon as it explains body organs and their functions. A brief layman's introduction to anatomy and physiology is followed by 19 fully illustrated sections:

* Cells, Chromosomes, and Genes * The Body's Main Parts * The Skeleton, Bones, and Muscles * Blood and its Functions * The Circulatory System * The Respiratory System * The Digestive System * Nutrition * Vision * Hearing * The Sense of Touch * The Senses of Smell and Taste * The Nervous System and the Brain * The Urinary System * The Reproductive Systems (Male & Female) * Sexuality * Human Reproduction * The Endocrine System * The Immunological System

All illustrations are clearly labeled and captioned. Supplementary information advises on treatments for common injuries including broken bones, explains the meaning of blood types, gives nutritional values of various foods, and more.
