Judi Nath, PhD, Professor of Biology & Health Sciences at Lourdes University has recently co-authored two new Anatomy & Physiology textbooks: Fundamentals of Anatomy & Physiology – 10th Edition and Visual Anatomy & Physiology  – 2nd Edition.

Released in late January 2014, Fundamentals of Anatomy & Physiology helps students succeed in the challenging A&P course with an easy-to-understand narrative, precise visuals, and steadfast accuracy. Also released in January, Visual Anatomy & Physiology combines a visual approach with a modular organization to deliver an easy-to-use and time-efficient book that uniquely meets the needs of today’s students–without sacrificing the comprehensive coverage of A&P topics required for careers in nursing and other allied health professions.

Of her experience serving as writer of academic texts Dr. Nath notes, “Most of my books are on a three-year revision cycle. As soon as one publishes, I have to begin work on another. It really is a never-ending process and I always have a ‘working copy’ sitting on my desktop. I am continually marking notes for corrections, suggestions, additions, deletions and re-organization for the next edition. I still have two books that I wrote on anatomy in the 5th grade - apparently I was destined to enter biology and become an academic author!”
