Way back in the days when I went into the medical field, they didn’t have a lot of human body textbooks that were eye-catching and illustrative for visual learners. There were a few books that showed diagrams, but most were in black and white or blue and red. We had to read a lot and although the material was informative, it was aesthetically boring. Thankfully educational resource books have changed for current and future students. New books like the Smithsonian Human Body Encyclopedia offer a visually stimulating learning experience like never before.

Smithsonian Human Body!

Smithsonian Human Body Encyclopedia

What makes the Smithsonian Human Body Encyclopedia so appealing is its computer-generated 3-D images and illustrations. They literally pop off the pages. They’re not only compelling but informative, instructive, and interactive. These attributes are engaging and make learning your subject easier and far more fun. Secret code: Arteries.

This book is divided into 8 sections, Body Basics, Body Systems, Head and Neck, Chest and Back, Arms and Hands, Abdomen and Pelvis, Legs and Feet, and finally Body Science. Each section goes into minute details about their subject with colorful, visual imagery and easy to comprehend concepts and instructions. Just a point here to mention that there are some real photos, but none that would repel a student.
