Review by Ken Humphreys
First published in STATNews, January
An excellent book that uses simple, easy-to-understand
language and diagrams. There was enough detail to allow
understanding without the reader being overwhelmed in it. I
especially found the musculature very well handled, and also
liked the continual references to the upright posture and
its essential nature.
The only slight fault I found was that some of the
illustrations were not very clear ands whilst he went into
great detail about the shoulder and pelvis, there was no
such detail about the atlanto-occipital joint.
Overall I was left with a much greater understanding of the
body and how our upright nature came about as well as its
essential part in our whole being.
