Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A textbook for students of anatomy who are concerned with the study of the living body and who wish to use this knowledge functionally for a greater understanding of the mechanisms which allow movement to take place. For this edition 1st ed., 1989, there is some reorganization of the text and illustrations for greater clarity, as well as new sections on the cardiovascular, respiratory, digestive, and urogenital systems, and on the eye and ear.

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Darla R Smith, PhD (University of Texas El Paso College of Health Sciences)
Description: This third edition (the second edition was published in 1994) provides detailed verbal and visual description of the functional anatomy involved in human movement.
Purpose: The authors seek to provide students of anatomy the knowledge necessary to understand the mechanisms of human movement. The reader is provided with methods to visualize anatomical structures via palpation and analysis of movement. Many students of anatomy and human movement do not have access to a cadaver laboratory. A text with sufficient detail to meet the needs of such students is indeed worthwhile. The authors succeed in providing detailed verbal and visual descriptions of involved structures.
Audience: This book is written for students of functional anatomy. Although the authors do not target specific practitioners, the text is appropriate for professionals dealing with the musculoskeletal system and human movement. The authors are experienced teachers of anatomy with backgrounds in biology and physiotherapy.
Features: This book details the bones, muscles, and joints of the human body and introduces the skin, viscera, and nervous system. Specific simple activities are analyzed, detailed methods of palpation are described, pathologies are discussed, and the basic biomechanics of each movement segment are included. Muscles are categorized by function, a very sensible approach for the practitioner. Bones, joints, and muscles are described in detail and excellent drawings and x-rays support the verbal descriptions. Most chapters include as many visuals as verbal descriptions, a unique and positive feature. The primary shortcoming of the book is the absence of any reference citations or reference list.
Assessment: This text offers the reader excellent detail on the mechanisms of functional anatomy. However, for most undergraduate students of human movement, other texts offer sufficient detail in a more succinct form: Gench, Hinson, and Harvey's Anatomical Kinesiology (Eddie Bowers Pub Co, 1995), and Jenkins' Hollinshead's Functional Anatomy of the Limbs and Back (WB Saunders, 1998).
From the Publisher
"This is an effective anatomy textbook that is direct toward health science students who need a thorough understanding of human movement. It is well suited for students of physical therapy, kinesiology, exercise science, occupational therapy and athletic training in partiuclar."

American Physical Therapy Association

“It retains the best features of previous editions, but the content has been rationalised into five main colour-coded sections that aid navigation…Clear colour-coded illustrations and individual muscle diagrams showing muscle attachments all aid understanding and learning…This is an ideal student textbook.”

J.M. Caulton. Physiotherapy 93 (2007) 168-171
