How does the book work? Well, you look up the particular muscle you want to test, look at the picture of the test position, and then simply apply manual pressure to the limb in the instructed direction. If it sounds easy, it is the way this book shows you- included are dozens and dozens of GREAT pictures that show you precisely what to do. So, if you have a need to regularly test muscles, I highly recommend you get this book- it's a little bit more expensive than some of the other muscle testing books, but its the best I've come across so far- in fact it sits right on my desk for reference. Health professionals might also be interested in The Sixty-Second Motivator to help get clients motivated to do their home exercise programs consistently.
It is clearly and well presented, very well-researched and accepted in the medical field. My main profession is fitness and health trainer and this book is a tremendous contribution to my practice.
The photos are great, including the classic black/white pictures demonstrating the different tests. The anatomy drawings are very good with excellent detailed descriptions of functional anatomy. The Primal Pictures CD-ROM included with the book is awesome. You can rotate anatomy diagrams 360 degrees while adding and removing anatomical structures such as ligaments, stabilizer and postural muscles, prime movers, veins, arteries, nerves, etc. It's a fantastic tool! I'm currently using some images for a couple of articles I'm writing on corrective stretching and strengthening. It is most certainly a must read for fitness and therapy pros.
