Anatomy Recommendation
Can anyone recommend an excellent book on human anatomy and/or physiology? I don't mind technical writing. I am really just interested in learning more about the way our muscular and skeletal systems work. Excellent illustrations are a plus.

Gray's Anatomy for Students.

It was a textbook before it was a TV show. A buddy of mine had a copy that I borrowed when I took a musculo-skeletal biomechanics class a year ago. Its a detailed, comprehensive text...and easy to understand.

Re: Anatomy Recommendation
Gray's Anatomy is an old standby, but I think it's more anatomy than physiology.

For an overall view of the basics with EXCELLENT pictures and low cost...if you're cheap like me and feel fine about paying for Barnes and Noble coffee and sitting around and reading their books without buying them...The Human Body Book is great.

Atlas of Human Anatomy by Fank H. Netter MD is what my brother used in medical school.

Re: Anatomy Recommendation
I'd definitely look for something focused on the material you're interested in, because a general soup-to-nuts text will probably inundate you with stuff you couldn't care less about. Perhaps something from the PT field.

The Anatomy Coloring Book, seriously. Any major book store should have it (I got it at a Barnes and Noble).

Re: Anatomy Recommendation
Thanks for all of the quick suggestions. I'll do a little shopping tomorrow...

Re: Anatomy Recommendation
Get the Netter's for anatomy.
You might checkout some of the Human Physiology review books in a medical school bookstore. They would provide good outlines if you are looking for an overview.
