Format: Paperback
Joseph Muscolino has written a text which takes the Kinesiological depth of experts like Neumann and Oatis and has brought the necessary concepts into a practical focus for massage therapists, as well as other allied health professionals. Rather than write from the vantage point of a lecturer's podium, Joe has taken the inquisitiveness of students and woven a text which answers their questions before they are asked. Our school, The Connecticut Center for Massage Therapy, strives to make the sciences more accessible to students while maintaining a high level of academic excellence. Joe has gifted our school and the profession with a visual and scholarly delight which fulfills that quest. When considering the melding of thoroughness and user friendliness, in some respect, he could have subtitled the text "Everything You Wanted To Know About Kinesiology But Were Afraid To Ask". For the student, concepts which appear to be confusing and out of reach come into razor sharp focus. For the licensed practitioner, the illustrations and explanations support the science behind the art and offer illustrations which provide clarity in discussions with clients. For teachers, the publisher's Evolve ancillaries offer images from the text as well as other thoughtfully considered classroom tools which complement this fine work. As Chair of the Health Sciences Department, I heartily recommend this text to anyone who wishes to expand their knowledge base in a practical, lucid manner.

Format: Paperback
As a massage therapy student completely new to the world of bodywork, this book is an excellent study companion. Every part of this book is helpful, even down to chapter outlines, key terms and word origins at the beginning of each chapter and review questions at the end. The layout is such that it is easy to read and digest the information without losing focus (an absolute must with the nature of this subject). There are additional information boxes throughout which really help to reinforce the concepts being taught. The pictures and photos are very clear and I found the chapter on bones essential as an aid to learning names and landmarks. There is a web site link for additional learning resources and answers to the review questions. This book has been very well thought out, written and presented and nothing has been left out. I wouldn't be without it.

I've looked at quite a few K. books, as well as anatomy & physiology textbooks. I pretty much use text books as references when designing workouts and troubleshooting.

This is a great book, its strength is the excellent information organization. Good overview of systems and logical progression of details. I first got this book from the library, and decided very quickly that I wanted to own it. I have no issue with a 6+ year old text book for $2 + shipping. No need to pay full price for content that doesn't drastically change with time, the text book industry is more or less a racket, always coming up with new editions to keep the students broke while making a profit on basically rehashed material. Really! there are no new parts in the body.

Format: Paperback
I found that this book was perfect in broadening my knowledge of the human body, more specifically the skeletal system and muscles. It managed to explain the way muscles worked and functioned in a simple manner so that I could fully understand everything that was being said, despite having no University background. It's helped me in the area that I needed it for and that is a better understanding of how my body operates during the strenuous physical activity in my fitness regime and weight routine. It enabled me to improve each activity I performed in some way or another and made me aware of the specific muscles being targetted during my weight sessions.

Great buy and definately worth every penny.

I bought this book to help me delve deeper into anatomy as it applies to movement. As a Pilates instructor I was looking for a plain spoken yet informative kinesiology book, this is it! Easily understood, written in plain English, this will help you in your exploration of how movement happens.

This book was excellent. I am studying Occupational Therapy. This has been helpful in learning body movement. The pictures are great and most done with live people and some with animated. The dvd that comes along is great going through the body as well and putting it all together for you in one setting without having to search.

An excellent text on kinesiology. Muscolino, however, has a non-standard approach to agonist-antagonist. His definitions and descriptions make good sense of these terms, but it may confuse students when every other author uses the traditional definitions. Otherwise, the book is well-illustrated and the text clearly presents every concept point-by-point.
