Book Preface

Human anatomy is a fascinating and complex subject, and one that is interesting to virtually every one of us. Learning anatomy does not have to be difficult and can actually be enjoyable. Exploring human anatomy in a simple, systematic, and fun way iswhat the Netter’s Anatomy Coloring Book is all about. This coloring book is for students of all ages; curiosity is the only prerequisite! The images in Netter’s Anatomy Coloring Book are based on the famous beautifully rendered medical illustrations of human anatomy by Frank H. Netter, MD, as compiled in his Atlas of Human Anatomy. This anatomy atlas is the most widely used anatomy atlas in the world and is translated into 16 different languages, and with good reason. The Netter illustrations have withstood the test of time and have illuminated human anatomy for millions of students around the world.

Why use an anatomy coloring book? The best reason, in my opinion, is because “active learning” always trumps passive learning. Seeing, doing, and learning go hand-in-hand; said another way, “eye to hand to mind to memory.” This is how most of us learn best. Textbooks, flash cards, videos, and anatomy atlases all have their place in learning human anatomy, but those elements that engage us the most and allow us to participate in an active learning experience “cement” the material into our memory.

The Netter’s Anatomy Coloring Book approaches human anatomy by body system. Footnotes to the illustrated pages refer to Dr. Netter’s Atlas of Human Anatomy and Netter’s Clinical Anatomy— the sources of the original full-color, fully labeled illustrations— for your further review and reference. In each coloring book plate, the most important structures are emphasized. The coloring exercises, labels, text, bullet points of essential material, and tables are provided to help you understand why the carefully chosen views of the human body are important both anatomically and functionally. I intentionally did not over-label each image because I want you to focus on the most important aspects of the anatomy; however, this is your coloring book! Feel free to color everything you wish; add your own labels as desired; cover structures to quiz yourself; in short, use each image as creatively as you wish to enhance your learning experience. In most cases, I let you choose the colors you want but would encourage you to color arteries bright red, veins blue, muscles reddish-brown, nerves yellow, and lymph nodes green, as these are common colors used in most color atlases of anatomy. Finally, I think you probably will find that colored pencils work best; but if crayons, colored pens, highlighters, or markers are your preferred medium, by all means use them! Most of all, have fun learning anatomy—after all, it is your anatomy too!
