A condensed version of the author's The Atlas of Musculo-skeletal Anatomy, this book is aimed at students and the general reader. The first seven chapters explain anatomical orientation, tissues, bone, the axial and appendicular skeletons, joints, and skeletal muscle and fascia. In the book's final chapters, the muscle groups of the body's four major regions are amply illustrated, with composite drawings detailing each region's deep and superficial muscles in both anterior and posterior views. Color tables show each muscle's origin, insertion, innervation, and action.
"A very comprehensive book, which provides an in-depth study of the muscular system as well as the skeletal system. Well researched, well planned, and beautifully illustrated...a must have for students and practitioners alike." -Mario-Paul Cassar, D.O., N.D., practitioner and teacher in osteopathy, bodywork, clinical massage, and sports therapy; author of the Handbook of Clinical Massage
