This "pocket-sized" (big pockets) book is portable and practical. It is well laid out by sections and each body area is examined in terms of systems. A clear explanation of superficial anatomy allows one to learn/revise on oneself (or a slim/muscular friend) the bony landmarks, muscular attachments and pulses. Bones, joints, vessels and nerves are dissected in a similar manner. Best of all, at each stage, common clinical applications are explained in clear language, so that it becomes easy to remember which nerve may be damaged by a dislocated shoulder, or structures are encountered in the various approaches for a hemiarthroplasty. The lucid (though never condescending) prose is well complemented by clear diagrams and imaging.
Some people will find this book is not detailed enough for them, and it does not claim to be a definitive anatomy text covering everything down to the vein supplying the rhubarb gland, but many more students will find it perfectly adequate for their requirements. Certainly as someone who learned lists of anatomy for first year exams, passed them, and -- I'm not alone here -- promptly forgot it afterwards, the old comprehensive parrot-fashion approach to learning was ineffective.
If you can read and recall all of the information in this book, you will be well prepared for most casual clinical requirements in many non-surgical specialities. I find that information presented in this manner is easy, even pleasurable, to read and, I expect, more likely to lead to retention than traditional dry anatomy texts.
