More About This Textbook

Overview

Anatomy of Movement presents a dynamic, integrated approach to the study of the physical structures of the musculoskeletal system and their functional relationship to the movements of the human body. In clear and concise text illustrated with more than a thousand graphic drawings, the author guides the reader on a lively tour of the muscles, bones, ligaments and joints of the arms, legs and trunk. The focus throughout the book is on anatomy not for its own sake, but in its functional relationship to the actual movements of the body in dance, exercise, and other physical disciplines. In this newly-revised edition, a majority of the thousand-plus illustrations are new or have been modified by the author from the original edition. The text has also been updated, and the sequencing of the presentation of the musculoskeletal anatomy has been revised in part.

"Emphasis is on basic human anatomy as it relates to external body movement which mainly concerns bones, muscles, & joints...will be particularly useful to those who deal with integrated or complex movements of the body."

    Simple, Clear and Very Useful

    Calais-Germain's book is one of the first books I go to when I need to review the essential muscles involved in movement. The illustrations are simple and clear in their presentation which, to me, is very helpful when I need a quick overview of what's going on in the body when it's in motion.

    Okay, but too technical and boring

    This book is okay if you have prior background in anatomy, otherwise, plan to look up many things elsewhere. I highly recommend Trail Guide to the Body by Andrew Biel instead, which is very clear, concise , easy to follow and entertaining as well!
