    Library Journal
    Ashwell (anatomy, Univ. of New South Wales; The Anatomy Student's Self-Test Visual Dictionary) aims to teach exercise educators about which exercises tone which parts of the body, as well as to aid those wanting the most effective route to strengthened and toned muscle. Vibrant, detailed, and anatomically correct drawings indicate which muscles are in use and which are stabilizers during particular movements, to create the most effective workout. The book begins with an anatomy overview including information on the muscular, skeletal, nervous, circulatory, and respiratory systems. The next section contains exercises for chest, back, arms and shoulders, legs and buttocks, and trunk, and the final section of the book is a coloring workbook, great for assessing student knowledge about the systems of the body covered in the main text. Exercise entries include warnings about injuries and instructions for how to do each one correctly, and a sidebar on each exercise page shows how-to's, variations including hard and easy methods, and active muscles for each. VERDICT This is an accessible learning tool for those studying anatomy and for allied health workers. A great resource for those interested in the effects of exercise on the body.—Christine Sharbrough, Chelmsford P.L., MA
