Looking for good biology novels.

Post by Mayhem » Thu Jul 31, 2008 7:02 pm


I'm fresh into the world of biology, just finishing my final high school class of biology iv realized i absolutely loved it. My goal from when i was entering grade 7 has been to become a doctor, more specifically a surgeon....and eventually neurologist / brain surgeon.

My question for today is, do any of you know of any good books, novels which tell about the human anatomy specific parts of the body, function and molecular formulas? I'm looking for just a nice read but also very educational and intellectual for my quest in continuing on reaching my goal as becoming a surgeon, just for common knowledge.

Certainly not a novel, probably not thrilling, but very complete when it comes to anatomy and *very* educational:
