    Super Simple Anatomy and Physiology: The Ultimate Learning Tool introduces students to the foundational principles of anatomy and physiology in a highly accessible, conceptual, and fun way. Avoiding hefty page counts and detailed explanations, this volume is sleek, focused, and designed to help new students attain a solid understanding of the essentials of anatomy and physiology.

    Dedicated chapters cover cellular biology, tissue organization, integumentary, skeletal, muscular, nervous, cardiovascular, respiratory, digestive, urinary, and reproductive systems. The text explains how bodily systems work together providing a holistic understanding of major processes. Students learn about protein synthesis, cellular membrane transport, the endocrine system, nutrition and metabolism, gas exchange, fluid compartments, acid/base balance, and more.

    The second edition of the text features reimagined chapters that address both anatomy and physiology for each topic discussed. In this way, students learn about the human body, as well as function within the context of structure. Content throughout the book has also been expanded or refined based upon student and instructor feedback.

    Super Simple Anatomy and Physiology is ideal for introductory anatomy and physiology courses. It is also an effective review tool for graduate and professional students, as well as practicing healthcare professionals.

    "SS A&P is all you need! I simply believe that it gives the right amount of knowledge without going too deep, and I think that's evident by how most every student has learned everything they need to without ever seeming overwhelmed."
    James Linton, MiM, Pmp, Cmbb, AAMIF, Professor of Biomedical Engineering Technology, St. Clair College - Windsor, Ontario, Canada

    "SS A&P is impressive! This book could be a good resource, especially as a review of basic topics for busy clinicians."
    James J. Brokaw, Ph.D., M.P.H., Professor Emeritus of Anatomy and Cell Biology, Indiana University School of Medicine—Indianapolis

    Student Reviews

    "SS A&P taught me ways to THINK, not just memorize questions and their respective answers. I think SS A&P does a great job of teaching students how to THINK, instead of memorizing a ton of things, we can just figure (things) out.

    "When I first bought SS A&P this past fall, I was super skeptical. However, as the semester progressed in BIOL 103, I grew to love my SS A&P!"

    "It honestly amazed me how much I learned from such a small textbook."

    "SS A&P has been extremely helpful in gaining conceptual insight into A&P and making the process of learning fun!"

    "SS A&P has been extremely helpful in learning anatomy and physiology this past year. It makes the information much easier to understand and retain."

    "The chapters are smooth and complete yet concise. This makes the material manageable."

    "The material in the book is easy to understand and helps those who are at the novice level."

    "I will definitely hold on to my copy of SS A&P to use as a resource as I go through nursing school."

    "I really think that SS A&P would benefit all of its users because it ensures that you first conceptually understand the basics of A&P."

    "I love that SS A&P forces you to think conceptually and simply."

    "SS A&P allowed me to read overarching concepts and understand important information without bombarding me with in-depth facts."

    "I like how SS A&P is simple enough to understand the important concepts, but also provides enough detail to learn the material well without feeling overwhelmed with information."

    "I found SS A&P to be one of the best ways I have learned anything in a classroom environment."

    "SS A&P is a lot simpler and easier to understand than other textbooks."

    "This book has truly helped me thrive in this class by actually understanding things!"

    "Super simple has helped me tremendously this year, especially this winter semester. SS A&P has been a great resource for me to use both in the class where it was required and in a class where it was not. I often found myself looking in SS A&&P for clarification about topics that were hard to grasp. Other than using the online assignments that we were required to do, I did not open the paper version of McKinley once because every time I tried to, I felt overwhelmed by the size and amount that was in the book. SS A&P was not this way, and it really helped me to learn the information rather than memorize and forget. I have started to enjoy and appreciate this class and the field as a whole, once I realized I had the tool to be successful right in front of me."
