A cornerstone of gross anatomy since 1943, Grant's Atlas of Anatomy continues to reach students worldwide with its realistic illustrations, detailed surface anatomy photos, clinical relevance, and muscle tables.

Grant's Atlas of Anatomy book.

I used Grant's Atlas of Anatomy during my gross anatomy class in medical school because it was the one recommended by the staff. It was fairly good, but not great. The illustrative pages on the twelve cranial nerves are perhaps the best. A few years after finishing that class, I found that Frank Netter . had finally come out with an atlas of human anatomy.

I have read the customer reviews ofGrant's Atlas and Netter's Atlas of Anatomy and have noted that the reviewers of Netter's Atlas have often denigrated Grant's Atlas. This is an improper comparison. These two atlases, although they overlap, serve, and are intended to serve, different purposes. Netter's is a general atlas, more encyclopedic in scope than Grant's. Grant's atlas is aimed more at the beginning surgeon (there are much more detailed works on specific surgical anatomy) and the gross anatomy prosector, such as a first year medical student. In the anatomy laboratory, I think many students would find Grant more useful than Netter, particularly in its description of variants of normal. There were also. I believe, some unfair comparisons to Gray's Anatomy. Gray is not primarily an atlas (although the illustrations are usually excellent). It is a texbook, and of value because of its unsurpassed descriptions of anatomy. Most of my physician colleagues have all three. These three works do not compete with, but complement one another.
This is a great human anatomy atlas and I would definitely recommend this atlas to any student who is a visual learner
I am a student of first year MBBS.At first I found Anatomy one of the most difficult subject,but after buying Grant's Atlas of Anatomy I found It quiet simple to understand.This is an outstanding and remarkable guide to the students.Some students prefer some other Atlases e.g.Netter's etc.But I will prefer The Grant's.Infact Grant's atlas is almost more than 50 years old name and the new editions are getting best day by day along with having the previous experience....
This is an excellent reference book for anatomy. As a trainee physiotherapist in the seventies this book became my bible. My granddaughter is now training to become a physiotherapist and this was a gift to her to help her in her studies. I still use mine today and find it useful when dealing with treatments for my patients as they can see the area that is creating the problem. A must have book.
I am a dental student taking gross anatomy, and like some of the folks who posted reviews below, my anatomy professor listed Grant's as the text to be used for the course. Put simply, Netters is a vastly better atlas, particularly for someone who has never taken gross anatomy before.
My issues with Grant's are many, ranging from the drawings to the way the index is organized. From start to finish, the book has some serious shortcomings which create substantial inconveniences for a new anatomy student.
Many of the drawings in Grant's atlas are far more lifelike than they are explanatory. It is almost as if the illustrator's intent was to show what one would see when dissecting, rather than explain what is what and where it is. This is particularly evident when dealing with the head/neck region (which, unfortunately, is a complicated area we focus on heavily) and the routes of the cranial nerves. The small footnotes at the bottom of the pages are almost useless, as it is difficult to determine what specifically they are referring to. There are very few boldfaced references (such as those you'd see in a cell biology textbook) that allow you to quickly locate a description of the item you're trying to understand in the picture, hence, you find yourself having to read the entire thing. Netters has almost no text, yet the drawings are done in a way that clearly explain what's going on, thus no need for text.
Another serious issue with the Grant's is the index. The major entries are not in boldface text. This is such a small detail (it wouldn't have cost them a cent more to make) that makes locating things much quicker. For example, there are hundreds of items under the entry "Nerves", yet "Nerves" is not in bold-faced text. That is inexcusable, considering the fact that most of the structures we study are muscles, nerves, arteries, fascias, processes, fossas, i.e. things that must be found under major entries. Believe it or not, it makes finding a topic in the index a real hassle. There's nothing to distinguish major entries from the items found beneath them, except for the indentation.
Although some of the problems with Grant's are small, they cause problems when you have to repeatedly deal with them. Anatomy is tough enough as is without having inconveniences from your atlas. On occasion, you'll find a picture in Grant's that is more descriptive than Netter's, but rarely. In general, Grant's is a lowsy book, which should be used only as a supplement to Netters in cases where you want a more lifelike picture.
It is a lovely book, yes, but there were some details missing that I would have really appreciated as a new "advanced anatomy" student. For instance, adding charts so that I can be sure this vein drains to that vein when I can't be completely sure based on the illustrations. Still a great book though!
Different editions offer subtle but often special differences. The illustrations alone are quite wonderful as are written descriptions.

I have a Grays Anatomy edition...this is comparable in a way I wanted. Anyone in the anatomy sciences that collect books would love to add this to their collection.
We're required to use Grant's Atlas as a first year gross anatomy atlas in med school, so I'll review it as a *medical student*. Here's my impression:

This book is fit to be used in a high-school or undergraduate anatomy course because it is not as detailed and advanced for medical students. The book skips a lot of detail, for example, it fails to show the vessels and structures inside the kidney. It does a very bad job revealing the shape of the small intestine and totally fails to show the pancreatic sphincters. And I could come up with more examples! However, the diagram quality is very good, especially for structures hard to see in real cadavers - like nerves of the brachial and lumbar plexus.

Overall, this book is good "quick reference" guide, used to locate the larger structures, as it has a very good and easy-to-use index. You may then need to refer to another atlas (like Netter's) to see greater detail.

Advice to buyers: Stay away from this book if you're in medical school or plan to attend. I don't understand why medical schools require this book. Buy it only if you're in high school or undergraduate college and on tight buget. This book is bad for medical students and good for others, so I'm giving it a 4/5.
