I am using this book for my Human Osteology class this semester. It is very comprehensive and supplements what the professor discusses in class. I would recommend it and have enjoyed using it for this class.

If you are studying osteology you need this book. That is the main reason to buy this book, it is worth the money. Artists trying to draw bone many also like this book as the photos are fantastic.
