This coloring book offers an enjoyable, highly effective way for students to learn physiology. Topics are covered in self-contained two-page spreads, allowing students to easily focus on the material being presented. A unique combination of introductory material, names and illustrations to be colored, and substantive captions deliver a comprehensive, yet easy-to-understand, treatment of physiology. The Physiology Coloring Book is the companion to the extremely successful Anatomy Coloring Book, which has sold more than 2.5 million copies.
Absolutely the best way to learn Physiology
By E. Williams "Indian food lover" - August 7, 2001
This book is incredible - authors have really latched onto a great teaching technique. The information is excellent, succinct and very complete. The drawings are incredibly detailed and FUN to color (ok I'm 52 and may be in my 2nd childhood, but this is an very effective way to learn a very complex subject.) I am a vet tech student going for a second career (and possible poverty) - classic midlife crisis - and this book is great. In addition to being very informative and intellectually stimulating, it is also relaxing to do the coloring. And, there are things I have learned that I will never forget because my mind immediately recalls me coloring the particular process. Wish there were a similar Anatomy book that concentrated more on veterinary anatomy - the parallel coloring book for Anatomy is very human-centered.Two criticisms: 1) I think the authors are trying to save you $$$ so they say you only need 10 colored pencils - save yourself frustration and buy the Crayola... read more
Unparalleled learning tool!
By Kimiannie "kimiannie" - February 21, 2000
I purchased this book after discovering how useful the Anatomy Coloring Book was to my studies, and I have to say I'm every bit as impressed with Wynn Kapit's second book! Although at first glance this would appear to be an overly simplistic method of learning (frankly, I don't think I've colored since I was six!), I've found it to be beneficial for several reasons - the colouring process introduces an entirely new aspect of learning (versus reading and auditory methods), and allows the student to see the positioning and relationship of the physiological processes in question. The diagrams are clear and comprehensive, and when completed, present an easy-reference, colour-coded plate for the student to quickly refer back to. Even after in-depth text readings on the various physiological systems, I find that completing the appropriate "coloring plate" in the Physiology Coloring Book leaves me with a much more complete understanding of the system in question.

I luv the fundamental idea of this book.
By Edward P. Krisner - May 27, 2007
Speaking for myself, I have come to view that the act of coloring does in fact foster retention and understanding. This book really does make learning fun. However, I am surprised that this is the 2nd Edition. This book is in dire need of careful proofreading. I am not qualified to say that there are fundamental errors of physiological facts (this is why I purchased the book) but I have found many many "slip of the pen" type of errors. The least bothersome are a myriad of spelling errors. There are some points where sentences are abruptly cut before completion. Common sense does There are several instances where it is unclear what part is what. Some of these mistakes can not be overcome with common sense making the lesson of the plate very difficult to understand.
P.S. The observant reader will have noticed that I abruptly cut a sentence midway through.
