This is by far the best book I have ever purchased. I am a pilates, yoga and personal trainer. Whenever I need some visual clarification, I open this book. The pictures and descriptions of the muscles are fabulous. +++++++++

Ecellent book! One of the best illustrated muscle books. Great for Massage students. All muscles show and discribe origin and inserion points which a lot of books don't. Great reference book!

The title of this book is spot on, and I am glad to have picked it up as it has been really useful to me in my work and studies. I needed a simple book for quick reference and this fits the bill precisely. Each two page spread has the diagram/drawing of the muscle on the left, and the basic information on the right. Having it all there without having to turn pages makes it very easy to use. If you are studying anatomy or medicine, then you will need a more detailed text, but for everything else I cannot recommend this enough.

I bought this book because a classmate of mine had it. While the book does not have every muscle that must be memorized in Gross Anatomy, it does have many and presents them in an easy-to-understand layout. It also gives stretches and exercises to target these muscles. This would be great for medical students, physical therapy students, physical training and anyone interested in rehabilitation. Well worth the price I paid.

Each pair of pages contains clear drawings of a major muscle, description of etymology of its name, origin, insertion, action, innervation, sports it is involved with, and stretching and strengthening exercises.

The front matter contains clear definitions of anatomical and kinesiology terminology with lots of beautiful clear drawings.

Nice index.

A labor of love and a wonderful gift to everyone who works with the human body.

Thank you Chris!!

I love this book!! The color pictures and descriptions helped me to ace my A&P Lecture and Lab courses this semester. Would have paid much more for this quality. Definitely worth it. I have recommended it to many of my classmates!

This book shows a basic understanding of muscles. It is so easy to follow. It came a little bent thanks to the postal carrier, so perhaps better packaging from the seller in the future is needed.

The book is in good condition. There is much detail on the muscles as well as great stretched described for each muscle, with and without equipment, stretches that I can recommend for my massage clients to further their muscle repair and conditioning.
