"Clearlylinks the molecular and cellular biological foundations of physiology toorgan-system physiology, as well as its aberrations that become disease. Designedto show 'expertise of a multi-author book with the consistency of a single pen'the editors sought Yale professors of physiology and then recast theirmanuscripts into uniform style to become a reliable resource for medicalstudents. The excellent color illustrations canreduce the need for additional hand-outs."
