Many features of this book, and many refinements in the writing, illustrations, and factual content, came about because of suggestions and questions from instructors and their students. In addition, many things that were tried experimentally in the first edition have been retained in the later editions because of positive feedback from users. But perfection in textbook writing seems to be an asymptote, ever approached but never fully reached. I invite my colleagues and students everywhere to continue offering such valuable and stimulating feedback as I continue the approach.

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.
