Product Description

From the Publisher

Chapter One presents labeled line drawings of the skeleton, which include all structures that are used in describing origins and insertions in the later chapters. A master numbering system is used so that each structure is labeled with the same number in all drawings.
The second chapter describes the various movements of the body, while the rest of the atlas then goes on to describe origin, insertion, action, and innervation of the skeletal muscles.
Each muscle is presented on a separate page with a line drawing. The drawings include the following important features:
1. Bones and cartiledge containing muscle attachment sites are shaded.
2. Adjacent structures are shown.
3. Muscle fibers are drawn by direction.
4. Muscle fibers are shown on the undersuface of bone and cartilage as dashed lines.
5. Tendons and aponeuroses are shown.
Throughout the text, each skeletal muscle is presented in a large format with detail and accuracy.
Headings entitled "Notes" can be found throughout the atlas. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

5.0 out of 5 stars Atlas of Skeletal Muscles 19 Feb 2006
This is a brilliant idiots guide to learning the muscles in the body, i found it so easy to read, not like so many others, it is a very thin book, and would aid as a companion to other books, you can also colour in the diagrams.
