Thank you to the colleagues and students who have
made this textbook so successful and helped to ensure
its staying power in a very competitive textbook niche.
Several people have asked me, with this book doing so
well, why I don’t retire from the classroom. The answer
is that not only do I find classroom teaching the most ful-
filling aspect of my profession, but also that it is my stu-
dents who teach me how to write. I work continually at
finding more and more effective ways of getting con-
cepts across to them, at turning on the light of insight.
The best ideas for communicating difficult physiological
ideas often come to mind during my face-to-face inter-
actions with students, and many are the times that I have
dashed back from the lecture room to the drawing pad or
keyboard to sketch concepts for new illustrations or
write down new explanations. Grading exams and
homework assignments also continually gives me new
impressions of whether I have effectively taught an idea
through my writing. Thus, my students are my unwitting
writing teachers. This pertains also to the students in my
“extended classroom”—students worldwide who use
the book and write to ask my help in understanding dif-
ficult concepts.

What are the improvements in this edition? I con-
tinue to aim for ever-better clarity, brevity, currency, and
accuracy. Physiology, especially, is a complex subject to
explain to beginning students, and I am always working
in both the lecture room and textbook to find clearer ways
to explain it. Physiology also is a fast-growing field, and
it’s a challenge to keep a book up to date without it grow-
ing longer and longer. After all, our lecture periods and
semesters aren’t getting any longer! So, while updating
information, I have looked for ways to make my discus-
sions more concise in each edition. I also continue to cor-
rect errors as students and content experts have sent me
queries, corrections, and suggestions. Accuracy is, of
course, an advantage of a seasoned textbook over a new-
comer, and this book has gained a lot of seasoning and a
little spice from my extensive correspondence with stu-
dents and colleagues.

This preface describes the book’s intended audience,
how we determined what students and instructors want in
the ideal A&P textbook, what has changed in this edition
to best meet your needs, how this book differs from others,
and what supplements are available to round out the total
teaching package.

This book is meant especially for students who plan to
pursue such careers as nursing, therapy, health education,
medicine, and other health professions. It is designed for
a two-semester combined anatomy and physiology course
and assumes that the reader has taken no prior college
chemistry or biology courses. I also bear in mind that
many A&P students return to college after interruptions to
raise families or pursue other careers. For returning stu-
dents and those without college prerequisites, the early
chapters will serve as a refresher on the necessary points
of chemistry and cell biology.

Many A&P students also are still developing the
intellectual skills and study habits necessary for success
in a health science curriculum. There are many, too, for
whom English was not their original language. Therefore,
I endeavor to write in a style that is clear, concise, and
enjoyable to read, and to enliven the facts of science with
analogies, clinical remarks, historical notes, biographical
vignettes, and other seasoning that will make the book
enjoyable to students and instructors alike. Each chapter
is built around pedagogic strategies that will make the sub-
ject attainable for a wide range of students and instill the
study and thinking habits conducive to success in more
advanced courses.

How We Evaluated Your Needs
This book has evolved through extensive research on the
needs and likes of A&P students and instructors. In devel-
oping its three editions so far, we have collected evalua-
tive questionnaires from reviewers; commissioned
detailed reviews from instructors using this book and
those using competing books; held focus groups from
coast to coast in the United States, in which instructors
and students studied the book in advance, then met with
us to discuss it in depth for several hours, including how
it compared to other leading A&P textbooks; and created
panels of A&P instructors to thoroughly analyze the entire
book and its art program. These efforts have involved
many hundreds of faculty and students and generated
thousands of pages of reviews, all of which I have read
carefully in developing my revision plans. In a less formal

way, the book has improved because of the many e-mails I
receive from instructors and students worldwide who not
only tell me what they like about it, but also raise sugges-
tions for correction or improvement. I’ve responded gen-
erously to these e-mails because I learn a great deal look-
ing up answers to readers’ questions, finding sources to
substantiate the book’s content, and sometimes finding
that I need to update, clarify, or correct a point.

How We’ve Met Your Needs
Our research has consistently revealed that the three qual-
ities instructors value most in a textbook are, in descend-
ing order of importance, writing style, illustration quality,
and teaching supplements. I have focused my attention
especially on the first two of these and on pedagogic fea-
tures, while McGraw-Hill Higher Education has continu-
ally engaged other authors and software developers to pro-
duce a more diverse package of superb supplements for
students and instructors.

Writing Style
Students benefit most from a book they enjoy reading, a
book that goes beyond presenting information to also tell
an interesting story and engage the reader with a some-
what conversational tone. That was my guiding principle
in finding the right voice for the first edition, and it
remains so in this one. I try to steer a middle course,
avoiding rigid formality on one hand or a chatty conde-
scending tone on the other. I feel I have succeeded when
students describe the tone as friendly, engaging, collo-
quial, almost as if the author is talking to them, but not
talking down to them.

In devising ways to make the writing more concise
without losing the qualities that make it interesting and
enjoyable, I have been guided by reviewers who identified
areas in need of less detail and by students who cited cer-
tain areas as especially engrossing and pleasurable to read.
In this edition, I somewhat reduced the number of bold-
faced terms and the amount of vocabulary, and fine-tuned
such mechanics as sentence length, paragraph breaks, and
topic and transitional sentences for improved flow. In
such difficult topics as action potentials, blood clotting,
the countercurrent multiplier, or aerobic respiration, I
think this book will compare favorably in a side-by-side
reading of competing textbooks.

When I was a child, it was the art and photography in biol-
ogy books that most strongly inspired me to want to learn
about the subject. So it comes as no surprise that students
and instructors rate the visual appeal of this book as sec-
ond only to writing style in importance. I developed many

illustrative concepts not found in other books. Profes-
sional medical illustrators and graphic artists have ren-
dered these, as well as the classic themes of A&P, in a vivid
and captivating style that has contributed a lot to a stu-
dent’s desire to learn.

As the book has evolved through these three edi-
tions, I have used larger figures and brighter colors;
adopted simpler, uncluttered labeling; and continued to
incorporate innovative illustrative concepts. A good illus-
tration conveys much more information than several times
as much space filled with verbiage, and I have cut down
on the word count of the book to allow space for larger and
more informative graphics.

The illustration program is more than line art. I con-
tinue to incorporate better histological photography and
cadaver dissections, including many especially clear and
skillful dissections commissioned specifically for this book.

Several of my students have modeled for photo-
graphs in this book. As much as possible with the volun-
teers who came forth, I have represented an ethnic variety
of subjects.

The third most highly rated quality is the package of learn-
ing supplements for the student and teaching aids for the
instructor. Instructors have rated overhead transparencies
the most important of all supplements, and we now include
transparencies of every item of line art in the book, and
some of the photographs and tables. Included are unlabeled
duplicates of many anatomical figures, useful for testing or
labeling to fit one’s individual teaching approach. A full set
of both labeled and unlabeled illustrations is also available
in the Instructor’s Presentation CD-ROM.

Students have expressed growing enthusiasm and
appreciation for the Online Learning Center and the
Essential Study Partner. We have continued to enrich
these media with an abundance of learning aids and
resources. These and other student and instructor supple-
ments are listed and described on page xiii.

What Sets This Book Apart?
Those who have not used or reviewed previous editions
will want to know how this book differs from others.

The sequence of chapters and placement of some topics in
this book differ from others. While I felt it was risky to
depart from tradition in my first edition, reviewer com-
ments have overwhelmingly supported my intuition that
these represent a more logical way of presenting the

Testing Your Comprehension
1. You are dicing raw onions while

preparing dinner, and the vapor
makes your eyes water. Describe the
afferent and efferent pathways
involved in this response.

2. Suppose you are walking alone at
night when you hear a dog growling
close behind you. Describe the ways
your sympathetic nervous system
would prepare you to deal with this

3. Suppose that the cardiac nerves were
destroyed. How would this affect the
heart and the body’s ability to react to
a stressful situation?

4. What would be the advantage to a
wolf in having its sympathetic
nervous system stimulate the
piloerector muscles? What happens
in a human when the sympathetic
system stimulates these muscles?

5. Pediatric literature has reported many
cases of poisoning in children with
Lomotil, an antidiarrheic medicine.
Lomotil works primarily by means of
the morphine-like effects of its chief
ingredient, diphenoxylate, but it also
contains atropine. Considering the
mode of action described for atropine
in insight 5.2, why might atropine

contribute to the antidiarrheic effect
of Lomotil? In atropine poisoning,
would you expect the pupils to be
dilated or constricted? The skin to be
moist or dry? The heart rate to be
elevated or depressed? The bladder to
retain urine or void uncontrollably?
Explain each answer. Atropine
poisoning is treated with
physostigmine, a cholinesterase
inhibitor. Explain the rationale of this
