A Great Job!! Aug. 14 2011
By Conrad Fischer, MD - Published on
Format: Paperback
Hey Dr. C!!!
You have a FABULOUS book! I recommend it to ALL the students I teach in step 1 physiology for Kaplan and it is the book for my own course in Physiology as the Co-Director of the Physiology Course for Touro COM in the Great New York City!

The clarity, brevity and consistent excellence on every page is truly admirable. As I sit here this evening re-writing the Kaplan Step 3 Q-Bank I just had to write to expess my admiration for a truly outstanding job.

Honestly, I grew up on Guyton but they have so deviated and so has Boron.You can understand physiology and actually have those books suck knowledge OUT of your brain.The length is fantastic and I love the extra color in the new version. You need me to film a course on your book. Woo Hoo! Seriously, you can prep for step one, get what you need for the hospital floors and get background for research.

I hope to meet in person someday but in the meantime, The Fisch sends you a big hug!!!
Warm and Fuzzies!

best purchase for a text book Jan. 18 2011
By Kim Dav - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Since this book already has so many great reviews, there isn't much more I can say. I bought this book to help me out with physio in Veterinary school. It is AMAZING. I was really struggling with cardiology and now I really enjoy the subject. The diagrams are great, the text is simple to understand, I am in love with this book! I can't believe how much it has helped me, and how cheap it is compared with other books. This is the best purchase I have made for text books in school.

Well, there's only one better book.. Aug. 27 2012

Well, there's only one better book..
And that's Harry Potter. Seriously, reading this book is a pleasure. And what's even better after reading it you remember most of what you've read. For your med school Dr Costanzo's book is probably all you need. Guyton is great for sinking into details, but for plain understanding of physiological concepts Costanzo is better (and it takes 10 times less time, which is good as there're other subjects you need to learn:)
Why look anywhere else if there's Costanzo?

[Insert Expletive] Feb. 10 2014

As a medical student... I want to say "F" Guyton, Boron, Hall, Rhoades, and Bell... seriously. There is no way I have time to read what's covered in those ginormous heavy a$$ books. I'm slightly annoyed that I did not find out how flipping awesome Costanzo's physiology book is until half way through my first year of medical school. This book along with the Thieme anatomy atlas and Pre-test practice questions are *the* most important books I own as a first year medical student.

I see myself using it as a reference during second year as well. It's soooo easy to read. She gets to the point. I need to understand what's going on and then apply it clinically. I am not interested in learning about every single detail to go out a develop a chemical marker for a disease process... otherwise I'd be a doctoral student and not a medical student.

must-have for medical school Aug. 2 2012
By greycells - Published on
Format: Paperback
Even if you are ordinarily reluctant to purchase textbooks, this one is definitely worth having. It is extremely readable and well-organized, and the charts diagrams are actually understandable, which is more than can be said for a lot of textbooks. It can easily be read cover-to-cover, but clear headings and bolded key words also make it easy to look up particular subjects. It provides sufficient detail and some clinical correlations, but it remains focused on key facts which makes for more efficient reviewing. Thus, Dr. Costanzo's text provide a clear and logical introduction to subjects prior to lectures and efficient review later on.
