Format: Hardcover
This book is written well and easy to understand, although there are few pictures/digrams to help understand certain aspects.
Other than that, the book covers a vast range of modules and provides simple definitions.
A very good book for my university Biomechanics module.

5.0 out of 5 stars a great help 27 Feb. 2010
By Richard Arnold - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This class, Biomechanics, was the hardest class I took in college, yet somehow ended-up being my favorite. The professor was really cool,and always helpful, which I really appreciated. I sold this wonderful textbook at the end of the class, but I wish I hadn't. I highly recommend this book by Peter McGinnis. In fact, I'd like to meet him sometime!

5.0 out of 5 stars UGH, Biomechanics 5 Dec. 2009
By Rolando Carrizales - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The subject of biomechanics is DIFFICULT. The book was helpful in assisting with learning the subject matter. I would have liked to see more questions/answers for the first few chapters that dealt with math/alegra/geometry. Future Biomechanic students, good luck on this subject. The book will be helpful.
