Is a dynamic, integrated approach to the study of the physical structures of the musculoskeletal system and their functional relationship to the movements of the human body. 

In clear and concise text illustrated with more than a thousand graphic drawings, the author takes the reader on a lively tour of the muscles, bones, ligaments and joins of the arms, legs and trunk.

The focus throughout the book is on anatomy not for its own sake, buy in its functional relationship to the actual movements of the body in dance, exercise and other physical disciplines.
