- Most tissue photomicrographs have been replaced with exceptionally clear photomicrographs with high magnification blowouts.
- Illustrations in every chapter have been revised and updated providing greater clarity and more saturated colors. In particular illustrations of blood vessels, bones, and muscles have been extensively revised.
- The use of the pedagogically designed Exhibits has been expanded to include the chapters on the axial and appendicular skeletons, and cranial nerves -- providing students with simplified presentation of complex content.
- Clinical Connections have been thoroughly updated throughout.
- An innovative art program of generously sized illustrations each including a key concept statement and review question -- provides a consistent learning environment enabling students to make the connection between text and visual elements.
- A concise narrative, praised by students for its straightforward and easily comprehensible writing style, emphasizes scientific content over extraneous detail.
- Exhibits specially designed self-contained lessons -- provide students with the extra help needed to learn the numerous structures that constitute certain body systems most notably skeletal muscles, articulations, blood vessels and nerves.
- The duel themes of homeostasis and disruptions to homeostasis are effectively presented through the relevant use of in-chapter Clinical Connections, end-of-chapter disorder boxes, and end-of-chapter lists of medical terminology.
- Continued coverage of scientific research and breakthroughs in understanding the human body keep the book on the cutting edge.
- Carefully integrated learning aids, such as pronunciations, word roots, summary tables, and cross-references complement the readable narrative.
- An extensive array of resources that facilitates the variety of teaching and learning styles.
