About the Author

Taking pathophysiology in pharmacy school, this was a wonderful book. It was so detailed, and supplemented the lectures with material. For me, reading helps me understand the material and put the big picture together. It explains in more detail certain aspects the professors went over in class that help me learn. The pictures are in color. The book I got was a paperback, but I did not mind that. Really, this is a great human physiology book that I would recommend any student to consider as a supplemental book or for a professor to consider as a required reading book. It definitely helped me study.
This textbook covers a lot of the basics and is easy to follow and read; the diagrams are simple and clearly laid out. Each section within a chapter ends with a concept check to help the reader understand the main ideas covered. And each chapter ends with a summary of key concepts/definitions in bold print follow by three levels of questions: 1) reviewing facts and terms, 2) concepts, and 3) problem solving. The best part of this text book is NOT having to purchase another book that provides all the answers, because they are already included in this book! Moreover, at the beginning of each chapter includes a “running problem”, which provides an actual physiological illness/disease describing the symptoms and as the readers continues, the book will ask a question about that particular disease relating to the key concept that is covered. I think this is a great way to help apply the material learned in that section to a real life illness. This is better than the medical physiology book I currently have, which is overwhelming and more difficult to read. If only Dr. Silverthorn would also write one for graduate students, physiology would probably be more fun to learn!
