By far the best textbook I have ever bought in the three years I've been in college! If you are a kinesiology major or plan on going to PT, OT, Med, or chiropractic this bad boy will save your life with the anatomy portion of these fields (especially with AOII). Very well organized and well written. Definitely keeping this until it falls apart!

As students we purchase dozens of books because they are required for our courses. However, many of them are just boring, or just collect dust as they are barely used during the class.

However, the Manual of Structural Kinesiology by Floyd has been a fantastic read with excellent information, it is very well written and only covers what is essential to kinesiology students. All the muscles are displayed, explained, with pronunciation for those like myself who have a hard time reading some of these Greek/Latin terms. In the back of the book there is a chart that lists muscle groups precises, so you will better understand what muscles are being used during the most common exercises.

I will end it there. Seeing that you are here, you are probably buying this book for class. This book is worth buying for sure, don't rent it. Unlike other books, this one is something you will want to keep and highlight and book mark for sure. I will be going back and forth to this book for a very long time. I would highly recommend reading it in its entirety.

One of the most important things you will get out of this book is to ALWAYS make sure you have good posture... Stand of straight and keep the erector spinae muscles strong!

If you need to use the worksheets or coloring pages in the book, I don't suggest downloading to a Kindle. The companion website doesn't have print out worksheets :(

Great textbook. If you are studying physical therapy, athletic training, or any course about biomechanics, this is the book you need.

This book about kinese was easy to follow and not only included information about how body parts moved, but also tables with joint actions, muscles used, nerves and plane of movement. Included are exercises and highlighted are muscle groups and joint action for both concentric and eccentric phase.

This book has tremendous knowledge for Human Movement, I've been using this for my kinesiology class. And this book as been really resourceful because sometime I forget terminology of a certain muscle or bone structure. This book has everyone thing you need to know about ankles,spinal column,hip, pelvis, arms, knee and foot structures along with visuals and texts to really understand the depth of each around for overall health for them and how to strengthen them as well (give you idea on how to per say). Overall I'm really happy with this new type of knowledge that I'm learning, just beware this is challenging concept to grasp.

This book is terrific! I used it for a functional anatomy class and it was so helpful to me. It is well organized with clear pictures (although note that they are only black, white, and red, not full color - however I actually think this made it easier to see). My favorite part was that it gave descriptions of how to stretch and strengthen each muscle. Definitely worth the money for anyone studying exercise science! :D

My only problem with this textbook is that it arrived as a special binder ready version. It arrived already in the binder so that was great, however, I was expecting an actual book. I checked the order after receiving it and I couldn't find anywhere where it said that this is a binder version and not a book. It would be great if this fact was mentioned somewhere before purchase.
