A colorful, highly illustrated textbook of human physiology aimed at medical and allied health students. Organized by systems, in line with the traditional way of teaching physiology followed in most courses, the book offers additional features that make it attractive to today's lecturers and students. The text is succinct, with emphasis on core knowledge, there are clinical application boxes throughout, and each section contains examples of applied physiology, to show how systems interact and are dependent on each other. There are also multiple choice questions (MCQs), with answers, at the end of each section.

"The comprehensive treatment given to all areas of medical physiology in this book makes it a good reference material for doctors and other health professional. Indeed, Human Physiology is a medical physiology textbook, which both students and instructors have been waitning for." Luke O.Nwoye, Mohammad Dallak, Department of Physiology, King Khalid University, Saudi Arabia, Saudi Medical Journal, October 2003 to provide an 'accurate base of factual knowledge and understanding' of human physiology, particularly for students being taught with a problem-solving approach. This is a good book for first and second year medical students who are breaching the main systems of the human body, covered in the text, for the first time. This book would be useful during many of the Second year Problem Based Learning sessions. As the book suggests, it is useful for answering many Learning Issues that arise from the problem-solving approach of the current curriculum."
