The illustrations are clear and easy to understand with just the right amount of detail. .
I use this book on my Fire HD 7 in my work as a Personal Trainer, it helps me share information with my clients about what muscles we are working and why we are doing particular exercises. However there is enough detail in the illustrations that they still show up well on a non-color e-reader like my Kindle 6.
This is a very useful reference book in regards to the basics of the main skeletal muscles.
I do recommend.
I employ deep tissue therapy with activation for my clients. The Origin, Insertion, and Action reminders, along with the basic functional movement section, help me to ensure the proper treatment for each individual. I also love the easy to use stretch and exercise inserts.
