Re: Anatomy Recommendation

I agree on the Netter Anatomy Atlas. It has the best drawings anywhere of human anatomy period. It is the standard atlas used here at IU School of Medicine. You should be able to get an older version which is just as good pretty cheap.

Re: Anatomy Recommendation

I used several different books for my MD and MS anatomy courses. My primary text was Gray's, as already mentioned. I also liked Clinically Oriented Anatomy by Moore which was quite similar to Gray's. Either one should be sufficient.
If you prefer pictures, Netter's Atlas, as mentioned, has fantastic illustrations but little explanatory text. Finally, if you're interested in nicely labeled color photos of cadavers, try Rohen's Color Atlas of Anatomy. Personally, if you're reading for leisure, I'd stick with one of the first two.
My medically-related posts are not medical advice or treatment. Always consult your physician for that information.

Ditto to both these books. I've checked out a number of A&P books for my students and these will serve you well. The Human Body Book is impressive.
