Book News
Eighteen slim volumes (144 pages each) present an abundant amount of information at a level appropriate for upper elementary or middle school students, as well as general consumers interested in a highly visual, basic presentation. Alphabetically arranged entries of one-to-four pages or so discuss various aspects of human anatomy and physiology, diseases and other disorders, treatments and cures, prevention and diagnosis, and human behavior. Supporting the text are color photos, drawings, and charts--something on every page--and boxed features with questions and answers about common concerns. The first edition was published in 1991, and the second in 1998; this third edition is fully updated. It is fully indexed and cross-referenced.
