    "Well organized!"

    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!

    "Fascinating from head to toe."

    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.

    "Fantastic and informative"

    This book ended too soon. I loved learning the basic about how the body works. It was well organized by body part and made sense to a history major such as myself. There is a 73 page coursebook that comes as a PDF.

    The author is funny in a dorky way and he had funny little jokes that he he enjoyed immensely.)

    I would buy Part 2, 3, 4, etc or anything by this author.

    "Basic Human Anatomy review"

    A good primer of human anatomy and some physiology with concommitant implications for medicine. Very accessible to the layperson.

    "A good general overview"

    Excellent material, nicely researched. The lecture style seemed to be a bit edgy, or was it just me?

    "Entertained learning"

    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.

    "Captured by every word."

    This lecture series has been awesome to listen too, I think I probably learnt more Human anatomy in 5 mins of listening to this, than I did in any of my Science classes back at school. The lecture is very easy to listen too, unlike many narrators who have irritating voices, I found this to be fairly soothing.
