Anatomy and Physiology

By Kevin T. Patton and Gary A. Thibodeau

This A&P textbook features full-color illustrations and a conversational writing style. This textbook focuses on concepts rather than descriptions to help you understand the information. With a focus on the unifying themes of structure and function and homeostasis, Patton and Thibodeau facilitate the comprehension of difficult material with thorough, consistent, and non-intimidating explanations that are free of unnecessary terminology and extraneous information.
You can also connect with the textbook through a number of free electronic resources, including the Evolve eBook, access to the 24-module A&P Online course, an electronic coloring book, online tutoring, and more.
