Gray's Anatomy of the Human Body was first published in 1858 by Henry Gray. It's been built on ever since. In its 41st edition as of September 2015, it's considered the authoritative sourcebook for pretty much all anatomical issues. Those who read it have less of a chance of Failing Biology Forever -- if they don't go blind from eyestrain first.

Not to be confused with the movie of the same name starring Spalding Gray.
