I have seen - and bought - a number of anatomy books within the last year, some as part of becoming a yoga instructor, some for clarification for dance purposes. This one was recommended as part of becoming certified to teach ATS belly dance. At first glance, the line drawings seemed a bit dated compared to some more recent anatomy publications - but the book does a great job of explaining anatomy terminology in a clear and thorough way. A great tool for a dancer, dance instructor, or anyone else interested in the inner workings of movement in the human body!

Simple accurate sketches illustrate how muscles work to move the body. Chapter 1 is a visual introduction to basic principles and anatomical language. The rest of the chapters are devoted to describing actions in the following areas of the body - trunk, shoulder, elbow, wrist and hand, hip and knee, ankle and foot.

Other books might have flashier, more colourful pictures, but this one best illustrates movement.

the only downfall is the darker highlighter that was used, although it was only used in minimal places. I love the detail in the drawings and how she relates it to everyday things.

This is a great book for anatomy. Plenty of detail and information.

I wish it would have had colour to make it a little easier to follow; but, seeing as I am just starting out in anatomy - maybe this is why it is not the perfect anatomy book for me.

I found the Key Muscles of Yoga much more helpful - better pictures and colour.
