Product Description

About the Author

Vladimir M. Zatsiorsky, PhD, is a world-renowned expert in the biomechanics of human motion. He has been a professor in the Department of Kinesiology at The Pennsylvania State University since 1991. He also is the director of the university's biomechanics laboratory.

Prior to coming to North America in 1990, Dr. Zatsiorsky served for 18 years as professor and department chair of the Department of Biomechanics at the Central Institute of Physical Culture in Moscow. For 26 years he served as consultant to the national Olympic teams of the USSR. He also was director of the USSR's All-Union Research Institute of Physical Culture for three years.

In addition to his academic pursuits in the classroom, laboratory, and field, Dr. Zatsiorsky is a prolific writer who has authored or coauthored more than 240 scientific papers and several books on various aspects of biomechanics. In recognition of his achievements, he has received several awards, including the Geoffrey Dyson Award from the International Society of Biomechanics in Sport (the society's highest honor) and the USSR's National Gold Medal for the Best Scientific Research in Sport in 1976 and 1982.

Dr. Zatsiorsky is a member of the American Society of Biomechanics and the International Society of Biomechanics.

He and his wife Rita live in State College, Pennsylvania. They have two children and two grandchildren.

Format: Hardcover
Dr. Zatsiorsky is very complete and extremely accomplished in his explanation of the science of human movement. I am a graduate student in Exercise Science at the University of Hawai'i and this publication has easied my transition and will be valuable to any student or professional in the Exercise Sciences.

Prerequisites for this book: background in theoretical mechanics July 10 2008
By MD into biomechanics - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I am an MD clinician interested in movement science. I have read a number of books in biomechanics of motion. This text does indeed go beyond what the "simplier" biomechanics books do. The problem with Zatsiorsky's text it covers biomechanics in an extremely esoteric way. Unless you are a mechanical engineer or have a very strong background in theoretical mechanics, then this book will be difficult to digest.
