Am I the only person who prefers Grant's over Netter? I think so. Netter is dynamic and beautiful, but the number of anatomical structures he labels on one image is baffling. Whereas, Grant's provides a plethora of images, with various angles and tissue layers, in greater detail.
Additionally, the entire cranial nerves chapter is superior to Netter's. Anyone should be willing to admit that.
Grant's Atlas has some of the best conceptual illustrations of the body of any atlas I have read. They are clear and are loaded with details that can truly buttress anatomy classes. However, there is very, very little text, and the text that the authors do include are mere descriptions of the illustrations.

Oh so fat and oh so great! I already had an Anatomy book but the pictures here are great! Plus they gave it to me for free from nursing school :)
As far as anatomy goes, lots of illustrations from different views, so it's good for that, and, I think, better (though not absolutely required) than general anatomy & physiology books, but I haven't seen Netter's atlas (though I love his drawings), so I'm not sure if it's 5-star worthy.
This is my favorite anatomy book of the others I own. It was a very helpful companion guide to use with White's Human Osteology text in my Human Osteology class. It helps alot with muscle attachments. Highle recommended.
was my first book in the medical school its simple and has quite informative pictures that we can depend on it
We studied it with clinically oriented anatomy or/and Snell
sometimes cunningham
This was another great trash-pick. WONDERFUL illustrations in this book - I have used it for reference for more than one art project.
very useful for the amateur people mechanic.
