Sinopsis:

Dear Students:
I am both honored and privileged to teach you A&P. To me, you are the most important people on earth. You are posterity. You are the reason a teacher exists. My primary goal is to educate you. I want you to be able to understand, appreciate, respect, and revere life and its processes. Work with me. Give me a chance to open your mind to new and fascinating ideas about living things. You WILL learn A&P after reading my book! My book is presented in two volumes. Both read like a novel and comprise a uniquely different, full-course, in-depth, comprehensive A&P textbook using unparalleled learning examples. They are a consequence of the total me, not just the professional me. Using this approach I have tried to eliminate that barrier between student and professor that I think prevents most students from wanting to learn, as opposed to having to learn. You are going to be tutored by me, "personally". My books integrate the typical lab coverage of other A&P courses. I approach the subject from a function to structure, rather than structure to function, perspective.
