The first edition of Kreighbaum and Barthels "Biomechanics "was the first book in this field to approach human movement qualitatively rather than quantitatively--focusing on generalizable concepts that can be used by an instructor, coach, or exercise specialist to analyze several different sports activities with a common overall performance objective. The fourth edition retains this qualitative approach and expands it to include an even broader perspective for movement professionals in general.
