Recommends it for: Osteologists, Biological Anthropologists, Forensic Anthropologists, etc..
This book provides true to life, actual-sized pictures of every bone in the human body from multiple angles. It teaches how to side, age, sex, and pretty much identify every human bone. There is a reason why it's one of the bibles of human osteology. If you work with human skeletal remains, then you probably already own it.
This is, hands down, one of the best osteological references there is. It is everything you could hope for without moving to 3d or video. Its value lies mainly in the photographs with different views, and in the systematic way it guides you through identifying bones. It includes dental identification.
