Principles of Anatomy and Physiology
The standard for Anatomy and Physiology classes everywhere. It's excellent organization and writing belie the enormous amount of information it holds - essentially, all current knowledge of what are bodies are made up of and how everything under our skin works. Excellent charts and visual aids that clearly explain major points and differences. Loaded with artfully illustrated graphics to demonstrate structure and function on both the macro and molecular levels. It's also peppered with professional cadaver photographs for exact views of the human body. I think I'll be keeping this book beyond my classes. Besides its usefulness for any biologically related subject, you can turn to it if you have any question as to how the heck our bodies work. The picture on the cover is of red blood cells.
