Format: Plastic Comb
This is a great book to have in your library. After using my teachers book, I simply had to have one of my own for my library. This book was very easy to understand. The illustrations were fantastic,very clear and colorful. Very nice size and easy to carry inside my notebook. What I liked best about Ms. Sieg book is that it was easy to read and follow along in class,the color coded sections made it easy to remember the skeletal system for taking tests. It was easy to address my own skeletal anatomy without the help of someone else. Compared to "The Human Body which illustrates a see thru overlay pictures view. Ms Sieg's book was much more informational and descriptive. Everyone should have this book as a requirement to any healthcare field where the skeletal system is being studied. Thank you for the opportunity to view Ms.Sieg book.

Format: Plastic Comb
As a massage therapy student, i found this book to be a great help in studying anatomy. A page is devoted to each bone/muscle, making for clear, large drawings with brief but direct text on bony landmarks and origin/insertion/action of the muscles, plus miscellaneous information. The book also classifies muscles by movement at the joints, to simplify studying by joint action. All in all, a great study guide for students and reference for the professional.

I'm a massage therapist, and we used this book as our Kinesiology book. It has a few errors (mainly in spelling) but the detail of the drawings is great, and you can color in to help you remember if that helps you to learn. Its a great reference!

Why is a spiral bound paper manual $47...book retails for $29.99 from the publisher...that's ridiculous...see below copy and paste from their website.

The only reason for the 4 stars and not 5 is for the format that the book comes in. I used to think that the fact that it is the only textbook/reference book that I ever went back and bought a second one of said a lot. Thinking because I must have loved and used the first one so much, was a good thing. But actually I took so many notes in my first copy and when I realized that I was having to transfer all of them to a new one - just because the publisher/author choose to go with a flimsy plastic spiral binding (about the strength of your average disposable plastic picnic utensils) and an even flimsier cover that will start to tear away from the said binding probably within the first 2 wks, I was actually tempted to give it only 3 stars.

But with all that said the content is more than adequate. If you really need to learn the muscles and bones and are looking for good illustrations that have just the right amount of detail to bring clarity but not over complicate things, this becomes an excellent resource. By focusing the attention on the origin and insertion points of the muscles, as well as significant boney landmarks and the grouping of synergistic or complimentary muscles and what actions they play in specific range of motions... really the book just ends up being set up more like giant flash cards. It is a great tool for those who need to memorize quick and efficiently. Overall, with all of the anatomy texts out there on the musculoskeletal system, this is still one of the better ones for quick learning. Even without additional detail and fancy color pictures. Just get it in a decent binding already. Even an average paperback would be better. At least the spine would hold up and the cover would stay on. Come on people...

I can't recommend this book enough. Own it, love it. There is nothing else to say. This book recommends itself.

I am a massage therapist and this book is the singular best book from my days at massage school 13 years ago! It's a constant resource for me and I've purchased it again and again for clients interested in how their bodies work and why they hurt! Great book, I highly recommend it to anyone, not just medical or professionals, this book is great for even my 9 year old with questions. The drawings are GREAT! Excellent descriptions of muscle function so you really get an understanding of what's moving when. 5 stars!
