The Handy Anatomy Answer Book Naomi E. Balaban and James E. Bobbick (Visible Ink Press 2008) (611) is an easy-to-comprehend reference guide to human anatomy and physiology written in question and answer style. This is part of the "Smart Reference" series. Here are three examples of the types of trivia contained in this volume: the two largest organs are the skin and the liver; the average person swallows 2400 times per day; and an eruction is a burp.

The book covered a lot of anatomy. I thought the questions chosen for each section/system were a bit odd. Maybe the author knew someone that had that particular disease or dysfunction? I am not sure what audience would appreciate the questions. The diagrams and general information regarding each system were very good and accurate though.(full disclosure-I am an RN)

Recommends it for: anatomy enthusiasts, trivia seekers
This book is quite an interesting read as it covers just about everything anatomy related. My only real qualm about the book is the question and answer format. The book is divided into sections based on the body systems, but the q&a is a bit scattered. Maybe that's just be, but I feel it could have been a bit more organized. BUT, I have learned quite a few interesting tidbits about the human body having read this, so I gave it 3 stars.

The copy of this book I got from my library seems to have been marinated in tobacco smoke - it literally stings my eyes to read it. Still, I soldiered through, because it is that useful, useful enough I might consider purchasing a copy (not really - I don't buy books). I like the Q&A format, though realistically a lot of these are questions no one would ever actually ask outside of an anatomy test. Good solid reference.
