Apr 03, Tanuki Wise rated it liked it. Seems good to use with clients and for demonstrative purposes, but there are better dynamic anatomy texts.
It feels a little simplistic which may actually cause more confusion, especially since similar areas of the body are covered in different areas. View all 3 comments. Currently I am reading this book for a yoga teacher training course, so this review will be in the format of notes to myself for the TT. Jan 14, Abby rated it really liked it Shelves: non-fiction , yoga. Excellent, dense and technical, this book looks at the inner workings of the skeleton, joints and muscles as they pertain to human movement.
Discussions of how movement relates to organs and other parts of human anatomy are not included, which focuses the book on just movement. If you're looking for how movement can affect internal organs, look elsewhere. But if you're looking for a very thorough explanation of how the body moves, this is your book. I am reading this book again because it is just such a wonderful perspective on anatomy from a very functional perspective. It probably isn't the last time I will read it, either. I think this one is a must read for any manual or movement therapist.

This book is so informative that I am never not reading it. Jan 31, Abhilasha Purwar rated it liked it. Wish the diagram were colored but the description and explanation is spot on.
