In its first edition, Richard Straub's text was acclaimed for its solid scientific approach, emphasis on critical thinking, real-world applications, exquisite anatomical art, and complete media/supplements package. The thoroughly updated new edition builds on those strengths to provide an even more effective introduction to the psychology behind why we get sick, how we stay well, how we react to illness, and how we relate to the health care system and health care providers.
