Ross and Wilson has been the number one choice for over a million students since it first published, over 50 years ago. One of the world’s most popular textbooks of anatomy and physiology, it introduces the structure and functions of the human body and the effects of disease or illness on normal body function. More than any other text Ross and Wilson uses easy-to-understand, straightforward language, enhanced by colour illustrations and a huge range of interactive online activities, to make learning more visual and engaging.

Ross and Wilson is essential reading for anyone embarking on a career as a healthcare professional, especially in the nursing and allied health professions, complementary / alternative medicine or as paramedics and ambulance technicians.

"This book is aimed at undergraduates and is what it suggests in the introduction 'a straightforward approach' to anatomy and physiology. It is simplistic, and in places reminiscent of A-level text. The chapter on the nervous system, has excellent informative diagrams where even the plexus appear understandable even to a novice. This is the book's strength and as a reference tool for patients would be helpful. " Date: July 2014
