    I’ve used this and the rest of Dr. Bernd’s Dissection Manuals, and each one is truly fantastic. Anatomy is a notorious course, but the books honestly made a huge difference. From the crystal-clear explanations and pictures to the useful quizzes, you won’t be disappointed either.

    Fantastic overview of the thorax. The pictures are crystal clear, and useful for identifying structures. At the end of each chapter, there are practice questions to test your understanding. I would have paid more for this manual!
  • Excellent anatomy guide
