Gray's Anatomy: The Classic Collector's Edition

by Henry Gray, ISBN-10: 0517223651, ISBN-13: 978-0517223659

It may actually surprise some people to know that Grey's Anatomy, the hit ABC television show has borrowed (sort of) its name from a really old medical book. Does Dr Dreamy (or is it Steamy?) have anything to do with the original they might ask - and the answer is no. 

Gray's Anatomy is a book by Henry Gray - which I guess is why it is called Gray's Anatomy and not, like, Smith Anatomy. This book is chock full of images and information that every doctor should know - even if they just plan on playing doctor like that girl on the show who has the horse face.This is important stuff, people!

This particular book has been a best seller for something crazy like 100 years and is a staple text for physicians everywhere. It set the bar for medical books and there really has not been another book to exceed - and in some cases even meet this standard. Doctors are not the only ones who will love  book like this - artists, naturalists, and even the common man can appreciate this beautiful, inspiring book.
