Dr Neill is passionate about making subjects clear through the use of images, and her belief that ‘a picture tells a thousand words’ informs the approach to the A to Z books, where the guiding principle is to make learning anatomy as straightforward as possible. She is also intensely aware of the needs of those studying anatomy for the first time, and the A to Z books were developed in close collaboration with students.
