Before I began writing this new edition, my editors at McGraw-Hill repeated a successful technique introduced at the last revision cycle: they requested users of the previous edition to send in their suggestions and comments, focusing on their chapter of particular interest. Thus, every chapter was reviewed several times over by people who had experience using the book in their own classrooms. The eighth edition benefited enormously by this input. It also benefited greatly through the reviews provided by faculty who previously used other texts.

This ebook provides an introductory explanation of the workings of the human body, with an effort to draw connections between the body systems and explain their interdependencies. A framework for the book is homeostasis and how the body maintains balance within each system. This is intended as a first introduction to physiology for a college-level course.
