For dancers and students of sports medicine, this book is superb. I have, oddly, both a dance and medical background and yet I learned a wealth from this volume and wish I'd encountered it earlier in my career as a student in dance. Not lacking for detail, this book guides the dancer through what he/she needs to know about the mechanisms of the human body as involved in dance.

A very rich informative book. A must read for dance students and allied healthcare professionals working with dance.
Ms. Fitt provides clear and detailed information about the movement and habits of the body, beyond what I have found elsewhere. The book repeats itself in classic textbook style and Ms. Fitt may use the phrase, "I haven't found any studies that demonstrate this, BUT.." one too many times, so activate your skimming skills, but absolutely worth the effort.
The information is clear & easy to understand, yet repetitive in basic descriptions. Organization & accuracy is very good and I find it to be a great source for understanding movement of the body to incorporate even in my massage & bodywork practice. Good reference material.
This book is a valuable reasource to all in dance, dance education, and dance health. Although this book is a textbook read, it is imformative, accurate, and something that I as a dancer and dance teacher will keep on my shelves until the day I die.
