Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A condensed version of the author's The Atlas of Musculo-skeletal Anatomy, this book is aimed at students and the general reader. The first seven chapters explain anatomical orientation, tissues, bone, the axial and appendicular skeletons, joints, and skeletal muscle and fascia. In the book's final chapters, the muscle groups of the body's four major regions are amply illustrated, with composite drawings detailing each region's deep and superficial muscles in both anterior and posterior views. Color tables show each muscle's origin, insertion, innervation, and action.
