The Secret Language of Anatomy is an initiation into the mysterious subject of anatomical terminology. Beautifully crafted illustrations uncover the close relationship between the parts of the human body and the evocative names given to them by anatomists. Decoding the body's secret language brings to life the history of anatomical terms, and explains why some words are used to describe very different organs and structures.

Complete with a guide to anatomical prefixes and suffixes, this book will appeal not only to medical students and practitioners, but also to readers interested in the history of anatomy, in the structure of the human body, and in medical etymology, as well as the history of language.

Publishing in time for Christmas and will be the ideal gift book for the growing market with interest in human anatomy, with titles such as Stiff: The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers (Penguin) and Gut: The Inside Story of our Body's Most Under-rated Organ (Scribe) selling strongly over the past 12 months.
