I had such a good time coloring that I thought I should probably go to medical school. Then I turned the page and saw how badly my markers had seeped through the pages and thought better of it.

This book saved my ass in Anatomy while doing my nursing pre reqs. The diagrams in class and the models with little flags couldn't hold a candle to the efficacy of coloring the different parts and committing it to memory.

Sure, this could be an enjoyable "fun" coloring book for an adult who enjoys it, but it's primary purpose was education. Some reviewers seem to have missed that.

If your a visual learner it's great. I would make photo copies of each section I was working, then the book can be reused as a refresher when needed as many times as you wanted to cover a topic.

though not specifically for artists, the musculature section is one of the best i have seen. points of muscle origin and insertion are made instantly clear. muscle function is described more clearly here than in any artistic anatomy text i have encountered. coloring helps with learning anatomy and allows the reader to become intimate with each reference plate. read, color, copy, and improve

I got this book in 2007, when I really wanted to color but adult coloring books didn't exist. I finished the bones and muscles that year. I used those pages as a reference over the years to look up sites of injuries. This year, after an offhand comment by a doctor, I picked up this book again and I'm working through the other systems. (So far, I've done the nerves, digestive, respiratory, urinary, and lymphoid systems. I'm leaving cardiovascular for last because it looks boring ...).

(So far, I've done the nerves, digestive, respiratory, urinary, and lymphoid systems. I'm leaving cardiovascular for last because it looks boring ...).

I have no connection to medicine or health care, except of being a patient. This book has served my various purposes - coloring without feeling like a five-year-old, reference text, making myself less stupid, confirming that I could never be a doctor, occasional insomnia remedy.

Coloring issues:
I wish the letters in the titles were thinner, so that I could just color them in by writing the word normally instead of having to back-track over the letters. It is frustrating that it advises "light colors" for so many structures. Medium colored pencil colors will show the details within the structures. The paper is thin and absorbs a lot of ink, so most of my markers end up looking "dark" (for instance compared to the Johanna Basford Secret Garden series). It is good that each page is printed single-sided, though I still have to put an extra sheet of paper behind the current page to prevent markers from bleeding through to the next sheet. And this is probably just me, but I spend a lot of time planning which colors to use, especially for the lymphoid system which has the same types of cells repeated for several pages.

I don't remember finding any errors in the bones and muscles section, but there are a couple in the rest of the book. For instance, in the nerves of the eyes, there is a layer of cells labeled "S" but there is no title associated with "S". Sometimes the coloring instructions say to use a certain color for "J" and there is no "J" on the page. I would say this book is clearly designed to be used as a supplement to other texts, because the text in this book is not self-explanatory (no definition of "peristalsis," for instance).

I'm not the target audience for this book, but I still get good use out of it. ...more

As both an artist and a nursing student, I love this book. It helps tremendously with my visual memory - and with tracing and keeping track of all the little details, especially of assorted vessels and nerves.

This book is fun because it has such an innocent sounding title, but has a lot of meat inside. It's not just a coloring book, but has descriptions of what is on the page. For most of the book printing is on the right hand page only. (That is a plus since it removes the problem of bleed-through.)

Reading is slow because I am a slow colorer. Coloring the illustrations makes them much more delightful, and the book often has suggestions as to what kinds of colors to use.

Okay, time to mark this one as read. I'm not actually reading it, just enjoying it from time to time. AND, the fourth edition is out, so it is time to mark it as read. ...more

No I haven't read every single page in this amazing book, but I do use it a lot! I absolutely love how if I can't find an answer to a muscle problem I can flip open this book and there it is; the answer staring me in the face. It shows the muscles and when they are used in convenient pictures with maybe some small explanations. It's so easy! I use this version but there are many others that I know are just as good. I bow down to these books.

This book is fun to have, and several of the sections (on muscle groups particularly) are useful, but I believe it covers a little more than it should. The sections on connective and epithelial tissue are way too detailed to make coloring a useful method of learning. It seems that they took textbook information, made it very concise, and tried to squeeze in images. It worked better for Botany and Biology, and I wouldn't recommend it if you are short on cash.

I highly suggest this for anyone who needs to learn anatomy. You color in the word of the body part and then color the corresponding part the same color. It's an amazing way to learn (and remember) anatomy. Pineal gland? Latisimus dorsi? You got it! I originally purchased the book for my Pilates training, but what I learned had me leaps and bounds ahead of my classmates in biopsych, psychopharmacology, and related classes in my Clinical Mental Health Masters program.

I am not a nurse, or a doctor, nor do I want to be. But I loved this book. I really love to color, yes, I am an adult, but it is not something I have grown out of. This book presents detailed pictures of human anatomy. The text describes the location and function of different internal organs. The diagrams are beautifully drawn. You can enjoy coloring the pictures and diagrams all while learning more about human anatomy.

I used this book for an introductory class in anatomy & kinesiology through UCSD extension. Since the class is geared for getting certified as an exercise instructor, the book was WAY more complicated than we needed. We discussed a higher level of information in more simplified terms. Having said that, the diagrams are very helpful.

It takes a lot longer to color them than you'd think!

This is a great way to learn anatomy. We learn using our senses. This method adds so much more than trying to GET the information from flat pages in a book. I need to perceive variety ,depth, contrast etc to really understand the nuances. This book along with colored pencils and a sharpener can help you learn anatomy better.

I like this series: It's better than I anticipated; I think some of the earlier editions had covers that made them seem too elementary. I've almost finished my Human Brain and I just started my Physiology, so I think they're pretty cool. Get out the big box of crayons ;)

Utilizes a different learning modality to really glue the information in your brain - was a really helpful and enjoyable break to an intense heavy on memorization anatomy course. Good review if you forgot what you learned way back when!

I've gone through two copies of this book. One of my all-time favorites. If you love learning about how the body works, and appreciate the meditative energy of coloring books, then this one's for you.

This is a text book , I suspect I will be referring to it and rereading sections of it for years to come! Using colored pencils to separate out the different parts of the heart, etc... Was quite helpful. Otherwise, left in the black and white state, it really does not mean a whole lot.

This book is great! What better way to encourage studying than through an artistic endeavour. Helps those that are right brain memorize all the intricate details needed for intensive anatomy classes down the road.

terrific illustrations. great for studying anatomy in detail. spending time coloring was a very different study experience and I think Im hooked. just need to make sure a large variety of colored pencils are available for use. also, yes use pencils.

Useful study tool, although some of the drawings are difficult to figure out as far as whether that thin line there is supposed to be a vein or tendon or an artery or any other long-thin-line-type-structure. But hey - it's a coloring book, so who cares?

A fun overview of basic anatomy, something I can do while listening to music and so on, allowing my kinesthetic sense to do the work. Some of the pictures get a bit garbled (i.e., the hand) unless you are the Rembrandt of coloring books.

Best and most FUN way to learn anatomy -- coloring! I love this book so much and recommend it highly to anyone learning anatomy. It's full of great information and uses a very hands on method of learning. Plus, it's just fun to color. :)

My chiropractor recommended this to me. Really helped me understand some things before I had surgery last year. I use it all the time when I have other issues and want to understand how I'm put together.
