Recommended for advanced middle school grade levels all the way through college and into the public library system is the outstanding 'Human Body Systems' reference set, intended as a reference using ten volumes to break down various body parts. Each book includes basic physiological information accompanied by excellent quality black and white and color photos, clear and simple diagrams, and charts. Each holds around 200 pages of basic detail which is not limited to basic physiology: included within each book's discussions are surveys of health challenges, new research, and the history of both diseases and discoveries. These articles make each book stand as well alone as in a set, providing students with authoritative, easily understandable health information suitable for research and reports. Though most valuable when purchased as a complete set, each book individually is valuable: members of this group include NERVOUS SYSTEM AND SENSE ORGANS (0313324565), URINARY SYSTEM (0313324026), REPRODUCTIVE SYSTEM (0313324492), RESPIRATORY SYSTEM (0313324244), SKELETAL SYSTEM (0313325219), MUSCULAR SYSTEM (0313324034), LYMPHATIC SYSTEM (0313324948), ENDOCRINE SYSTEM (0313326991), DIGESTIVE SYSTEM (0313326800), and CIRCULATORY SYSTEM (0313324018). Each book introduces and explains the system and related parts, how it relates to help, common malfunctions and diseases and the tests and treatments which accompany them, new discoveries about the body system, and the key scientists and doctors who have made the discoveries. Add color illustrations throughout and you have a winning set certain to receive wide consultation in a library setting.
