This is a useful book for learning muscles and attachments, but there were some mistakes with the numbering of images on the first few pages, which caused me to then doubt the accuracy of the rest of the book.

For a basic understanding of muscles, their attachments and nerve supply this book is great. As with any anatomy revision i would always use a couple of books because they often have mistakes (which is to be expected, even with gray's) and can also disagree with each other. Theres also plenty of space on each page to add in your own notes such as stretches and techniques that can be used to treat the muscles. It does look a bit cheap though and i'm not too sure how long it will last but im sure it would be pretty easy to get re-bound. All in all i can advise anyone to get this book unless you like working with colourful pictures....

My classmates and I have found that this latest edition of Stone and Stone has errors (cf. page 6) and general copy-editing lack of review.
The illustrations are also rather ugly (computer-generated it seems) compared to the previous versions.
Considering the errors we found, there might be more; rendering this book useless for studying skeletal muscles.

I cannot even give this book 1 star ( had to give it a 1 star for review purposes but it does not deserve a 1 star). I am an osteopathy student and this book was recommended by our tutor. I purchased the book and one particular page in the first 15 pages or so showed a diagram of the cervical spine C1 and C2. At least 3 of the structures were incorrectly named ie calling the Dens the Transverse Process etc. It was probably only a typo mistake but then I had a huge problem trusting other structures in the book which may be fine but this diagram created massive confidence issues for me regarding the info contained. I sent the book back to Amazon and got a refund. I would certainly not recommend this book however I believe the previous edition is a very good book.

As a student of remedial massage therapy this book is essential reading, providing accurate origins and insertions along with illustrations to help build a mental picture of the muscles you are learning.

I bought this book to help me with my anatomy module in my OT degree and it was so helpful for learning the muscles and which movement they support.

Good visual example about muscles and bones, a bit let down regarding ligaments. All in all useful book for anatomy students

Pics are great but the grammar is terrible, making it hard to understand.

Disapointment! The book use to be really good, ideal for learning, with a simple and very usefull design for inmediate visual understanding of muscles and bones. I can see that there is a little bit addicional information, but the choice of doing it with this boring 3D look a like, is a mistake that takes the visual design down. It is not longer a pleasure. I recommend to try to get some of the previous editions.
