    Best Kinesiology Textbook for Joint Mechanics!

    As an Instructor of Musculoskeletal anatomy, physiology, and kinesiology classes, Chiropractor, and author of books on the musculoskeletal system, I buy and read most every book published on the subject of kinesiology. Donald Neumann's book on Kinesiology is hands-down the absolute best kinesiology textbook out for joint mechanics. His book is clearly written in a straight-forward manner that makes it accessible to most anyone and yet it is also the most thorough book on this subject. Further, the illustrations are the best I have ever seen in a kinesiology text. I believe that this book is a must for any student of the musculoskeletal system!
