This was really easy to read! The diagrams were also plentiful and helpful! It was also able to act as a anatomy book! The explanations were elaborate and easy to understand! It definitely helped with my studies!

I'm staring at the screen and trying to figure out what to write in my review of Neumann's "Kinesiology of the Musculoskeletal System: Foundations for Rehabilitation". Why? Well, to be completely honest, I can't really say I have read the book through and through, not according to my standards anyway.

For example, Thieme's atlas might state that the lumbricals "flex ...more

This text is exhaustive in its treatment of human joint function. I would never say it is light, fun reading, but it offers a complete discussion of most muscles' functions and would serve well as a reference when less exhaustive resources fail to make things clear. Neumann's work will help unravel mysteries and, with multiple readings, help us understand some of our bodies' trickiest and most complex motions. In sum: wonderfully dense and complete, little fun.
