The complex structure and its myrid functions have been lucidly delineated by Dr. Shirley, an eminent Neurophysiologist. She has made a successful attempt in taking through this interesting sajourn of human biology. She has initiated the travel through a window into the structure and functional organization of biological unit and takes one through various systems skeletal system to reproductive system. She has used simple language with straight forward disposition of the facts, making the whole reading informative and pleasurable while doing so she also keeps the subject interesting and thought provoking.
