The internet is obviously a wonderful resource for many types of information. In fact, many scientific textbooks and references are now available on-line. For example, “Gray’s Anatomy”, an invaluable reference on human anatomy and physiology, is available through Bartleby.com.
Barnes & Noble Books describes “Gray’s Anatomy” as follows:
“From its simplest and most basic parts to its most important and complicated systems, almost anything you want to know about the human body can be found in Gray’s Anatomy, the seminal book on the way the human body works.

“Here you have the opportunity of learning the anatomy and purpose of every part of the human body. For example, if you want to know how your heart does what it does, simply turn to the appropriate section within and you will find diagrams and illustrations accompanied by a clear, comprehensive text that will give you the information you desire quickly and completely. No home is complete without Gray’s Anatomy. It is both an essential reference book for family health, and an enlightening voyage of discovery into the nature of our bodies.
