Product Details


"For the student of motion, this volume is distinctly superior to all the traditional anatomy textbooks. The drawings and text are models of clarity for demonstrating the interrelationship of structure and function. This is a book for beginner or expert alike. Anatomy here is not forbidding; it is a joy to learn or review the wondrous facts of the construction of the moving human body. At last, here is an ideal anatomic atlas-text for the study of human movement." Dr. John H. M. Austin M.D., Professor of Radiology, Columbia University Medical Center, New York ------ "Mr. Gorman's patience and brilliance in picturing Human Anatomy has been achieved without question. Professor Raymond A. Dart, World-renowned discoverer of Australopithecus, Former Professor Emeritus and Dean of the Faculty of Medicine ------ "I consider Gorman's work a treasure of useful and interesting information augmented by the artistic quality of the illustrations, and the insights into efficient versus inefficient use of the body which clearly springs from Gorman's teaching experience. The handwritten text is a charming asset which further distinguishes this work from many other anatomy books which do not explain the close alliance of structure and function so well done in Gorman's work." Deborah Caplan M.A. R.PT. Author of "Back Trouble" Physical Therapist, formally affiliated with New York University Medical Center
