This text is one that students actually don’t sell back to the bookstore when the semester is over! It is one of the best texts I have ever seen and love it. It is especially amazing for teaching students surface anatomy. Plus, the videos make my job so much easier.

For 25 years, I searched for a text that would help my student therapists understand anatomy using their own body as a ‘supplemental text.’ Of all the texts I have used, I have never seen an anatomy text as practical and as hands-on as Trail Guide to the Body. The illustrations are superb. This text is a must for the therapy student who is serious about learning hands-on anatomy.
