Understanding the Mysteries of Practical Human Biology for Non-Scientists provides students with an accessible overview of the structure and function of the human body. The text provides highly practical information students can use to make healthful choices, better understand news and media about nutrition, medications, medical devices, and procedures, and grow their knowledge about genetic or infectious diseases. The text features coverage of bones, muscles, nerves and hormones, heart and blood vessels, lungs, digestive organs, and kidneys, with emphasis on how they all work together for balance and health. Students also learn about male and female anatomy in the context of reproduction. Readers explore aspects of life, such as coordination of the musculoskeletal, nervous, and endocrine systems, and various responses of the human immune system. Providing readers with foundational knowledge that can help them make informed decisions related to their lifestyle and personal health, Understanding the Mysteries of Practical Human Biology for Non-Scientists is ideal for elective science courses for non-majors, as well as introductory anatomy and physiology courses. Jeffrey A. Kushner, Ph.D. is a human biologist and biomedical scientist. He holds a Ph.D. in biomedical sciences with concentration in behavioral neuropharmacology. Dr. Kushner is a lecturer at the University of North Carolina at Pembroke. Throughout his teaching career, he has facilitated medical education for first and second year medical students and taught undergraduate and graduate-level courses in medical biotechnology, cellular and molecular biology, bioinformatics, biochemistry, physiology, and pharmacology. Dr. Kushner was awarded a grant to develop multimedia learning materials to support his general education biotechnology course and has developed similar offerings for a variety of additional courses.

Instructors consistently ask for a human biology textbook that helps students develop an understanding of the main themes of biology while placing the material in the context of the human body. Mader Human Biology was developed to fill this void. Organized around the main themes of biology, Human Biology guides students to think conceptually about biology and the world around them. Just as the levels of biological organization flow from one level to the next, themes and topics of Biology are tied to one another throughout the chapter, and between the chapters and parts through the concept of homeostasis. Combined with Dr. Mader's hallmark writing style, exceptional art program, and pedagogical framework, difficult concepts become easier to understand and visualize, allowing students to focus on understanding how the concepts are related. Multimedia Integration: Michael Windelspecht represents the new generation of digital authors. Through the integration of multimedia resources, such as videos, animations and MP3 files, and in the design of a new series of interactive animations, Dr Windelspecht has worked to bring Dr. Mader's texts to the new generation of digital learners. A veteran of the online, hybrid, and traditional teaching environments, Dr. Windelspecht is well versed in the challenges facing today's students and educators. Dr. Windelspecht has also acted as the subject matter expert on all aspects of the Connect content being prepared for the Mader series of textbooks.
