Editorial Reviews

Review

-- It does a good job of focusing on several topic areas that are important to manual therapists and other students of movement and function. The inclusion of various concepts of motion are not often found in massage therapy textbooks. Also it pairs a classical explanation of what muscles do with excellent explanations of surface anatomy, strength testing and discusses roles of the muscle beyond its action, such as its role in stabilization etc. All throughout, the text is supported by clear helpful photographs illustrated to show the movement more clearly. -- The tables are very good for detail oriented visual learners. Putting it into motion and Try This are great for the kinesthetic learner. -- The "Putting it into motion" section does a great job of addressing kinesthetic learners

I'm currently assisting with an anatomy and kinesiology class at a massage school in Seattle and have found this book to cause some confusion amongst students due to a number of errors. We have recently switched to this text but will be switching back to our previous text(Trail Guide to the Body)as a result. For an example check p.320 where you will see that iliacus and psoas have been switched in diagram 8-6A.

There are alot of errors throughout the book. Our class calls it dys-functional anatomy. Bummer if you must use this book for school. Trail Guide is MUCH better! Our school actually went back to using Trail Guide as their text.

I am a physical therapist. This book is on my counter at work as a reference for me and others who need it on different occasions to keep abreast of muscle functions, etc. Highly recommend the book to others.

Amazing book that I wanted to use for my students, but I couldn't afford to do it as a primary learning tool because of the typos.
