5.0 out of 5 stars best purchase for a text book Jan. 18 2011
By Kim Dav - Published on Amazon.com
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Job!! Aug. 14 2011
By Conrad Fischer, MD - Published on Amazon.com
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Well, there's only one better book.. Aug. 27 2012
By Szymon N. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
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?

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolute best physiology book Nov. 5 2010
By Christopher D. Rice - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
As many many others have said- this is absolutely the best physiology book out there. My medical school required some other lousy book which I used a handful of times and then abandoned. This is extremely well organized, hits all of the important and relevant points but doesn't get bogged down in low yield detail. Whether studying for boards or just trying to understand physiology, I've found this book to be absolutely the best!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for medical school May 19 2011
By Nakira - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I'm a first year medical student and used this book for our physiology class after trying the one the professors recommended and hating it. Constanzo was recommended to me by a second year student and they were spot on. Things are organized in a very logical way and combined with the clear explanations made things very easy for me to understand. Our recommended course text on the other hand was very dense and often explained concepts in a way that was much more complicated than necessary, so Constanzo saved me. Since each section is an easy read and not that lengthy it was also easy for me to read Constanzo on top of the rest of my course work, it was never too time-consuming to do. And I did really well in phys so this book definitely paid off for me. I also liked that there are a lot of diagrams all in color and good summary tables throughout. There's also a bit on pathophysiology at the end of each section giving a good introduction to some of the main renal, CV, etc. conditions. Finally because the book is only ~500 pages from cover to cover it's less than an inch thick and doesn't weight that much so I could easily carry it around with me to study out of without feeling like I just put a brick into my bag. I can easily see why Constanzo is so popular both as a textbook for courses and for board review (with the smaller BRS physiology version). I definitely recommend this book for medical students.
