Format: Paperback
As a physiotherapy student, this book has provided me with everything I need to know about muscles. The diagrams are clear and colourful, information is accurate, and there are lots of useful extras that you don't find in other similar books; such as functional movements, common problems and injuries, and stretches and strengthening exercises.
I previously bought Stone's Atlas of Skeletal Muscles, but saw this and decided to swap - it is so much clearer and more useful!
Thoroughly recommended for anyone studying this subject area!

As a current sports therapy student and a Personal Trainer based in N.Ireland, i can thoroughly recommend this book. Having brought the Atlas of skeletal muscles by Stone et al, I can state this book is superior. The diagrams are clear and colourful in comparison. It is colour coded and shows muscles in context, as supposed to isolation. Therefore i have no hesitation recommending this to fellow students.

Format: Paperback
I have seen various muscle books that were ok, including Paul Blakey's and Stone's Atlas, but when I found this one I realised that it was what I had been looking for. It is clear, concise and I liked the additional advice on stretching and stenthening. The pictures show exactly the origin and insertion and give extra information such as basic functional movement and sports which commonly use the muscle. A must have book for all Sports masseurs/ physios etc

Format: Paperback
Having come from a non-scientific background I wanted a book that would teach muscles clearly, simply but in a detailed fashion. Having spent ages skim reading all the anatomy books in the Uni. bookshop this book, for me, stood out as being miles ahead of all the rivals. My partner, a physio, unbeknown was also selecting a book for me - she chose this text as well! It's simply an excellent book. It is clear, concise and accurate. The diagrams are exceptionally clear. There are exercises which help to make the info. understandable and relevant. It's a must have book.

This book quite simply floors the competition. It is an intermediate book on muscles aimed at bodyworkers and trainers. It's got full colour, exceptional clarity, and very useful extra information such as relevant exercises, stretches etc; all with illustrations. 10/10.

Format: Paperback
An extremely useful book for any student of health-related subjects. It is clearly laid out, well annotated & brilliantly illustrated. As a physio student this has given me exactly what I needed to learn & is a very useful reference book. It also includes self-stretching exercises for all muscles & strengthening guidelines.

As a new physiotherapy student, I think this book is going to be an invaluable aid to the study of muscles. I purchased the Atlas of skeletal muscles before this, but this book is miles better. I would recommend The consise book of muscles as it is easy to understand, with clear illustrations. The further detail such as the stretching and strengthening exercises enhances understanding.
I would thoroughly recommend this to any students of the health field.

Format: Paperback
An excellent book of very clear concise descriptive colourful diagrams, with very easily understandable text. Ideal for both the Therapist & the student, or those who have a general interest in how the muscles of the human body work & where they are situated. An excellent all round book for anyone needing to know about muscles. Ideal for Sports/Body Massage Therapists.
