    Summary: pocket atlas themebook
    Rating: 1

    a poor text. Very confusing diagrams with an odd numbered key. You
    spend so much time looking for the key, thay you can't even get back to
    the anatomical structure that you were reviewing. Compared to a
    "Netters" text, this is junk. It is a shame that Dr. Netters is
    deceased! We need his diagrams and plates in pocket format!!

    Summary: A valuable key to the standard international nomenclature
    Rating: 4

    The Pocket Atlas is a useful and economical illustrated reference to
    the standard international nomenclature of human anatomy (Nomina
    Anatomica, NA). Most of the book follows a format with typically four or five number-coded black-and-white line
    drawings on each right-hand page, and on the facing page, a key to the
    illustrations with the English name, Latin (NA) name, and a concise
    definition of each term. A typical entry is
    23 Greater palatine foramen. Foramen palatinum majus. Opening into the
    greater palatine canal located near the posterior margin of the bony
    palate between the palatine and maxilla. B E
    (B and E are figure references.)
    Some entries include, and indicate by different bracket styles,
    alternative but equally accepted synonyms, unofficial expressions for a
    structure found in the Nomina Anatomica, unofficial synonyms not found
    in the NA, and expressions newly modified or added by the International
    Committee. There is a key to the bracketing and font changes inside the
    front cover for easy reference. End-matter includes a bibliography of
    94 literature citations and a thorough 66-page index.
    I wouldn't regard the Pocket Atlas as highly important for routine
    undergraduate teaching or a layperson's reference. The illustrations
    are clear but unremarkable, and there are much better atlases of human
    anatomy available. But for anyone writing in the area of human anatomy,
    for students of the health professions who want a concise review, and
    for anyone who may be occasionally confused by the variations in
    terminology from one anatomical atlas to another, this should be a
    worthwhile addition to one's professional library. As a medical
    textbook writer, I find this much more useful than the Nomina Anatomica
    itself, which is out of print, hard to find, overly expensive, and
    offers no illustrations or definitions.

    Summary: Well recommended for the crammer! Concise, yet detailed....
    Rating: 4

    As a student preparing for final examinations in Visceral Anatomy, I
    found the Pocket Atlas of Human Anatomy Based on the International
    Nomenclature by Heinz Feneis highly recommended. Descriptions are
    concise and illustrations are detailed. One comment, though, is that
    the 1985 Georg Thieme Verlag Stuttgart (New York) edition MISSED OUT in
    the Index section. All entries under "T" are missing. My rating would
    have been a "10" if not for this. Any comments on this from the
    publisher? Nevertheless, this book is a must for users like me. Ken
