Two Zebras Human Anatomy in the Age of Wikipedia

  • Author(s) Information
Seriously. Look in any large commercial bookstore—you’ll be shocked by the sheer number of books written on the subject. Especially bookstores associated with a university, and even more so, universities with a medical school. You’ll find Anatomy textbooks, many of them hefty tomes and others, slimmer, distilled, even pocket volumes. Also Anatomy atlases, some of these of the classic, masterfully hand-drawn kind and others, the increasingly popular slick photograph and illustration variety; and Anatomy dissection guides; and an Anatomy coloring
book or two. Elsewhere, there are likely Anatomy-themed novels, and more. So what, other than hubris or a tragically delayed middle-age crisis would drive me to now add yet another Anatomy book to this hopelessly cluttered pile? The only answer I have to this obvious but no-less-worthy-for-being-so question is “None of those others are like mine.” For one thing, there is the small matter of my three decades spent studying, organizing, drawing, explaining, encouraging, haranguing med students on three continents on all matters
