I went into this course very skeptical: don't I need to see pictures and diagrams etc? And how interesting can a list of organs, bones and muscles be?? Well I was very wrong to be worried on both fronts. As the lecturer states early on, you don't need pictures because you have a body attached to your head! As for interest, this course is far more than a list of bones and organs.
The lectures cover every large aspect of the human body, from bones to the reproductive system. Whilst he does discuss individual bones and their latin names, this is only so that he can discuss how the form of them gives rise to function which ends up being way more interesting than I would have guessed. He also gives comparisons with the anatomy of other species, and pulls in information from embryology and biochemistry, which adds a whole other dimension and really leaves you feeling like you understand things a lot better.
I enjoyed every bit of this course and will probably go back and listen to a few of the lectures again because they are so interesting. Wholeheartedly recommended!

This is not dry lecture stuff. Prof Young explains anatomy and does so at a scholar level for those relatively new to anatomy, but what makes it both fun to listen to and easy to remember is his intertwining of development and alternative anecdotes (e.g. did you know snakes 'pop out' their larynx so they can breath whilst slowly swallowing their prey?).
Thank you dr Young.

The author and read surely has a talent for not only human anatomy but teaching as well. A must listen for anyone who is lucky enough to be in possession of one of these remarkable machines known as the human body!

A superb read covering the basics of our body in an easy to follow format. Worth listening to twice to fully grasp some of the concepts. Professor Young is an engaging speaker.
