Instant Anatomy is quite different from the vast number of other anatomy books. The clever structure of the information facilitates accurate and speedy retrieval of anatomical facts, and is very popular with students.Two features make the book especially useful. First, it stresses anatomical relationships which are even more important now with the increased use of cross sectional scanning and computer generated reconstructional imaging. Second, it allows structures such as blood vessels and nerves to be seen in their entirety instead of regionally as they are so often described in standard textbooks. The section on the autonomic nervous system has been expanded in this second edition to meet the needs of students who often find this area of knowledge so difficult.
