Book Description

Learning anatomy requires more than pictures and labels; it requires a way "into" the subject, a means of making sense of what is being shown. Anatomy of the Moving Body addresses that need with a simple yet complete study of the body's complex system of bones, muscles, and joints and how they function. Beautifully illustrated with more than 100 3D images, the book contains 31 lectures that guide readers through this challenging interior landscape. Each part of the body is explained in brief, manageable sections, with components described singly or in small groups. The author doesn’t just name the muscles and bones but explains the terminology in lay language. Topics include the etymology of anatomical terms; origins and attachments of muscles and their related actions; discussion of major functional systems such as the pelvis, ankle, shoulder girdle, and hand; major landmarks and human topography; and structures relating to breathing and vocalization. This second edition features all-new illustrations that use a 3D digital model of the human anatomical form. The book's thoroughness, visual interest, and clear style make it ideal for students and teachers of the Alexander and Feldenkrais techniques as well as for practitioners of yoga, Pilates, martial arts, and dance.

4.0 out of 5 stars Anatomy/Medical terminology 29 Jan. 2013

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A good purchase, clear and informative, helps with study or if you want to build on your existing knowledge. Clear diagrams and not overwhelming - a good size study book. American publication but not a problem from what I have read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well explained, although at times went to deep 17 Dec. 2014

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I chose this rating because it explains itself very well, the only reason I dropped a star was because it did get to deep at times, and found it hard to take in, but great to further your knowledge or to refresh upon
