This unique atlas is a study guide to the anatomy and actions of human
skeletal muscles. It is designed for use by students of anatomy and
physiology, physical therapy, chiropractic, medicine, nursing, physical
education, and other health-related fields. This concise, compact

human skeletal muscles.
Summary: this book
Great shipping! it was fast and there was a stabilizer on it so it wouldnt bend. very thoughtful, would buy from them again.
Summary: Student's Review
I'm currently a student, and when my professor showed me this book I
was hooked. It's great for it's simplicity. I can pay 10 bucks for a
huge chart that shows me every single muscle in the body all at once.
But I need more than that. I need every single muscle's origin, action,
insertion and innervations. So I rushed home to order a copy of this
book. Knowing that it'll be a great help with my studies!
Summary: Clarity of display
Atlas of Skeletal muscles is a basic book on anatomy which clearly
illustrates each of the skeletal muscles in line drawing form. Bones to
which the muscles attach are highlighted so you can clearly see point
of origin and insertion. Small text section beneath or beside each
illustration demonstrates Origin, Insertion, Action and connecting
It's spiral binding allows the book to lay flat when needed for ease of
study. A basic, beginner book for students of anatomy, and one which I
would reccomend. It was a textbook of mine in Massage Therapy school.
Summary: Most-frequently-consulted anatomy book on my shelves
I have used this book constantly since I bought it for my human anatomy
dissection lab a few years ago. The clarity it provides by giving each
muscle its own illustration is unparalleled. The summary pages are
excellent as well. I recommend this to my fellow yoga teachers and
students, and use it frequently in the classes I teach.
Summary: NOT RECOMMENDED
200 pages of One muscle drawing per page in black and white only, with
text: muscle origin, insertion, action & nerve relationships. Looks
like a home made book.
