    I'm currently using my dad's ancient copy of this book to flatten out my Skyrim map so that I can frame it and hang it above my desk. It seems to be doing a bang-up job so far.

    This may seem a strange book to have on one's five star list. However, it has been central to my life for thirty years. Now in its fortieth edition (originally published in 1858) it has been the keystone to learning human anatomy by medical students and doctors. Its illustrations are works of art, the labelling beautiful and the text, occasionally grandiose and impenetrable, memorable.

Gray died shortly after the first publication, his intent being to produce a cheap (£150 for the current edition - I hope his family gets royalties, readable and complete anatomy book. One hundred and fifty years later i think you can say that he succeeded.

I work in the medical field and I have always had a fascination of how the human body works and is built. This book is a must have in learning these things. The illustrations are a bonus to the reading. I proudly display this on my bookshelf and find myself looking through it for many pieces of information.

    This one(just remembered) stands in for itself of course, but also for the textbook for the science class I took in Jr. High school. The teacher(Mr. Mangus?????) brought in a dead cat for anatomy teaching. Didn't say how he got it but it was dried up and preserved - poor thing! Date read is approximate of course...

    I have always wanted to be a surgeon in the future, so I knew this book would be a perfect summer read! Although it was a very long book to read, it was extremely interesting. I took AP Biology my junior year so I had a bit of knowledge of human anatomy and physiology. This book gave my more information on the human body and all of its functions and systems. It was a tedious, long, hard read, which took me about one month to read (July- August), but I am so happy I read it!

This book allowed me to touch up on my skills and lessons from junior year. I enjoyed this book and would definitely recommend it to anyone with an interest in human anatomy, sciences, biology, and physiology. I learned a lot! Although this book forced me to use the wed to research some things (that I did not understand), this book provided more of a comprehension for me on science.

    I found the JG Press copy of Grey's Anatomy a few years ago at a used book sale and could not put it down...obviously not in the way you can't put gripping fiction down, but in the sense that the drawings absolutely mesmerized me. I couldn't look away from it. Even the typeset fascinated me, as did the oddly calming (but definitely not boring!) effect the words had on me whenever I picked it up at night. "Phalanges," "sternum," occipital," even "longitudinal fissure" all sounded like poetry to m I found the JG Press copy of Grey's Anatomy a few years ago at a used book sale and could not put it down...obviously not in the way you can't put gripping fiction down, but in the sense that the drawings absolutely mesmerized me.

It's kind of weird, because I don't do much medical reading, but I find the original Gray's Anatomy great bedtime reading...

    As an inspiring doctor, this book holds a enormous amount of helpful information. Immensely detailed and may require a long time to read depending on whether or not you can learn from it well. I am not finished with it yet, still taking notes on the cardiovascular system but can't wait to read the other body systems. It is a valid resource and great reference for anything in the medical field. It has been a tremendous aid for me considering I am currently in a medical terminology class.

    Okay, so I may not have read it from cover to cover in a single continuous attempt but I am certain that I have at one time or another, perused each and every page. Of course the book would mean nothing or at least very little to me, without the bountiful illustrations. An essential reference book for every bookshelf.

    هذا كتاب عظيم بالبي بي ال، وأفضل من سنيل بمراحل. يفك أزمات كثيرة لأنه يجيب لك تشريح هذا العضو وأشعته وهستولوجي له. فيريحك كل ماعليك تقرأ بدون البحث. وغالباً يكون أكثر من كافي. مشكلته مافيه تحديد للأشياء المهمة. عندي نسخة إلكترونية منه بالطبع.

    It's a bit funny rating a reference work in anatomy, but if there ever was a five-star anatomy book it is of course the classic Gray's. And actually, the illustrations can certainly be looked upon as art.

    A wonderful and fascinating atlas of the workings of the human body. It has some quaint anachronisms and other interesting things. Starting off with the overall structure of cells in the body and covering the different tissues and glands and membranes, the book follows up with embryology and talks about the development of the human fetus from conception. The book has many general chapters and systematically goes through all of the body systems. After this section of the book, Gray's Anatomy resta A wonderful and fascinating atlas of the workings of the human body. It has some quaint anachronisms and other interesting things. Starting off with the overall structure of cells in the body and covering the different tissues and glands and membranes, the book follows up with embryology and talks about the development of the human fetus from conception. The book has many general chapters and systematically goes through all of the body systems. After this section of the book, Gray's Anatomy restarts it's page count on the subject of the bones, or Osteology. This section starts with the spine, goes to the skull, then the thorax and upper extremities, and the pelvis and lower extremities. Each muscle attachment is listed and all of the articulations are as well. Each bone has a corresponding picture to go with it, and it is beautifully rendered in black and white. That would be my only complaint overall actually, but not enough to take away a star from this book. Next up is the subject of the joints or the Articulations as the book calls them. It goes through the types of joints and what they are made of and all of that. Then it goes to the articulations of the Trunk, followed by the upper extremities and the lower extremities. The next major chunk of the book deals with muscles and other deep tissues or fascia. It starts at the head and goes down. All throughout the book we also get surgical advice, so that makes for some gruesome imagery. One wonders how they did it back then without anesthetic. Ah well. Each part of the muscles and fascia section contain information on dissection of the area in question. The Blood-Vascular system follows. This section starts with the heart and goes to the arteries and then the veins. The lymphatic system gets it own section following the section on the vascular system. Following that is the nervous system, the organs and then it covers specific situations like an Inguinal Hernia. All in all this book is amazing, but very involved. It contains over 600 illustrations of cells and body parts so if you have the time, a look is certainly worthwhile.

    Grey’s Anatomy was a great book. Although it was not a story it was quite enjoyable. As someone who dreams of going into medicine I think it was a great first step in the right direction. The book I written on a 7th grade level thoroughly explaining how the body works and explains all of the systems, from lymphatic to nervous, It covers it all. Although the book is quite hefty it is filled with helpful diagrams that illustrate the words written on the page. Since I am a visual learner I think it Grey’s Anatomy was a great book.

Although the book is quite hefty it is filled with helpful diagrams that illustrate the words written on the page. Since I am a visual learner I think it is helpful to be able to see what Gray is talking about. After reading this book I have a greater understanding and better appreciation of the complexity of the human body and how all of its little system blend together to help our body function. Another thing that I really enjoyed about this book is that it assumes that you no nothing. For a doctor or soon to be doctor the level of the book may be to basic, but for a high school student who has not studied medicine yet the book was perfect. Only a few times did I find myself not understanding a concept in the book and having to look it up in an outside source. On the other side, a book like this and the knowledge one learns from it will never go out of date or out of style, our bodies will always work the same, out lungs will breathe, our hearts will pump, and all of the bodies systems will work together in unison to keep us alive and well. And when we do get sick or one of our systems malfunction the doctors treating us will rely on their knowledge from a book like this, written in the 1800s to help cure us. I highly recommend this book as a summer reading book because of it’s volume and size and it takes a good amount of time to sit and process through the book.

    # Own in hardback. NC FS: "All the tissues and organs of which the body is composed were originally developed from a microscopic body (the ovum), consisting of a soft gelatinous granular material enclosed in a membrane, and containing a vesicle, or small spherical body, inside which are one or more solid spots." LS: "In the female, the vagina perforates the recto-vesicle fascia, and receives a prolongation from it."

    This is the most complete book on the human body; every part of the human body is mentioned, and clearly defined, an easy translation, also; this book will never change, as the author has everything perfectly laid out; yes if you were to dissect a part of the human body that is provided also; this belongs on every shelf;the bok contains color photos. Henry Gray really put this writing together perfectly! A "must have"

    The definitive Anatomy guide. I just picked this up and have spent many hours reading some of the areas I find most relevant to my course work, and also to read some areas that I'm just curious about. I'll never actually finish this book as I consider it a valuable reference rather than casual reading.

    I love this book! I can't say that I have technically read it. it isn't that sort of book. As a medical historian- this book really does it for me. The illustrations and descriptions provide a fascinating insight into the mind of the anatomical understanding of yesteryear. One of my favourites to flick through

    I own the Barnes and Noble leather edition. Cover is really nice and much nicer then the cover on their older version. Can't wait for it to be delivered sometime next week. Apparently for the leatherbound, instead of gold gilt it's silver gilt. I seen a YouTube video and it looks really nice and bigger then the pictures show.

    Excellent book for all those in the medical profession, whether it's as a student or a doctor or researcher. This book entails all the needed information to create a general backbone to medicine, since anatomy is the language of medicine. Cannot wait for new editions with updated information, since research in the field of variations are currently a hot topic.
