Book Description

1 Mar 2010
Most coaches are reluctant to study sport mechanics; from experience they equate it with boring texts loaded with formulas, calculations, and scientific terminology. That s not the case with Sport Mechanics for Coaches. This updated third edition provides an introductory look at the mechanics of sport in a manner that s understandable and usable for the novices in the field.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good basic textbook 16 May 2013

This is a good book for Kinesiology majors. Many explanations, charts, illustrations and the format is easy to follow. It is difficult to understand some of the physics and physiology and formulas used, but this is a basic college textbook.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ahead of Schedule 24 Dec 2011
By KDAndy - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Merry Christmas! Thank you for getting my book out before the holidays. It arrived many days earlier than they stated it might (27 December was the expected arrival). This is a holiday blessing. The paperback looks wonderful - like new! I hope to keep it in this condition so that after this course perhaps it can be sold again and I can recoup some of the investment.

Have a blessed holiday season.
