In pedagogical terms, this is an innovative medical text book in six volumes. What is new is that there are two books in one cover, where a shared folder contains two spiral-bound books dealing with parallel topics: one presents the healthy human body and its functions, while the corresponding illnesses are presented on the opposite page. This encourages learning and is further supported by the specially developed illustrations and the nice logo photo of a healthy wooden doll with a “sick” shadow. This is a textbook with a clear, classic layout that inspires students to learn.
