Fine-art instruction books do not usually focus on anatomy as it relates to movement, despite its great artistic significance. Written by a long-time expert on drawing and painting human anatomy, Classic Human Anatomy in Motion offers artists everything they need to realistically draw the human figure as it is affected by movement. Written in a friendly style, the book is illustrated with hundreds of life drawing studies (both quick poses and long studies), along with charts and diagrams showing the various anatomical and structural components.
This comprehensive manual features 5 distinct sections, each focusing on a different aspect of the human figure: bones and joint movement, muscle groups, surface form and soft tissue characteristics, structure, and movement. Each chapter builds an artistic understanding of how motion transforms the human figure and can create a sense of expressive vibrancy in one's art.

Over a decade ago, when Siddhartha Mukherjee was a young, exhausted, and isolated medical resident, he discovered a book that would forever change the way he understood the medical profession. The book, The Youngest Science, forced Dr. Mukherjee to ask himself an urgent, fundamental question: Is medicine a “science”? Sciences must have laws—statements of truth based on repeated experiments that describe some universal attribute of nature. But does medicine have laws like other sciences?
Dr. Mukherjee has spent his career pondering this question—a question that would ultimately produce some of most serious thinking he would do around the tenets of his discipline—culminating in The Laws of Medicine. In this important treatise, he investigates the most perplexing and illuminating cases of his career that ultimately led him to identify the three key principles that govern medicine.
Brimming with fascinating historical details and modern medical wonders, this important book is a fascinating glimpse into the struggles and Eureka! moments that people outside of the medical profession rarely see. Written with Dr. Mukherjee’s signature eloquence and passionate prose, The Laws of Medicine is a critical read, not just for those in the medical profession, but for everyone who is moved to better understand how their health and well-being is being treated. Ultimately, this book lays the groundwork for a new way of understanding medicine, now and into the future.

The first section of the Atlas contains photographs of all views of the skull; the second is made up of photos of the disarticulated bones. The next section pictures muscle attachments, and the final two show radiological and anthropological landmarks. Bones, sutures, landmarks, and foramina are identified in the sharp and detailed photographs, and legends on the facing pages group terms by category for easy and rapid identification. The radiology and anthropology sections focus on the requirements of the practitioner.
Two criteria guided the compilation of this atlas: ease of use and convenience as a study tool. The text--presented as legends keyed to the photographs--groups terms according to entries, such as bone, foramen, or landmark. Each foramen is supplied with a description of structures that it transmits. The keying of the features to legends on a facing page makes the book particularly easy to use as a study guide and avoids clutter or obscuring of detail on the pictures themselves. The size and clarity of the pictures allow easy viewing of each labeled structure. Small regions with many landmarks are enlarged to show detail. Multiple pictures are provided of any single complex view to prevent clutter and confusion. Such attention to detail and user needs makes this atlas is an excellent study and reference tool.

Anyone who's ever had back pain knows how debilitating it can be. From a slight twinge when you walk to an all-consuming ache, it can keep you from working out, working at the office, and even getting out of bed. Luckily, there are ways to both prevent and relieve back pain--and they're detailed in Healthy Back Anatomy.
Written by a leading chiropractor, Healthy Back Anatomy features a range of exercises that help strengthen and stabilize the muscles of your back. Each move includes step-by-step instructions, plus full-color photos and anatomical illustrations that let you see how your muscles work. You'll see what muscles you're targeting and learn how to avoid injuring them. And, when you're ready, you'll even have modifications to make the moves harder and challenge yourself further. It's a complete program that includes stretches, balance and posture exercises, and lower back, neck, shoulder, and core exercises, as well as warm-ups and cool-downs.
When you're hurting, having a pain-free back can sometimes seem impossible. But with this book, your health is in your hands!
organs of the human body is a prerequisite not only for the
education of medical students but also for everyone involved in
diagnostic and therapy of human diseases. This knowledge can
optimally be gained by dissection of the human body, with an
excellent atlas by one’s side. Today there exist a number of good
anatomic atlases, but most of them contain mainly schematic
drawings, which minimally reflect reality. In contrast, the photographs
of the actual anatomic specimens have the advantage of
conveying the reality of the object with its proportions and
spatial dimensions in a more accurate manner.
On the other hand, schematic drawings help us to better understand
the photos. Therefore, in this eighth edition, the number
of drawings has greatly been increased and old drawings have
been replaced by new ones specifically adapted to their accompanying
The didactic purpose of this atlas is not only to help the student
understand the topography of the human body. We also hope
to provide a way to systematically learn the anatomical structures
and functions. Therefore, the chapters of regional anatomy
are consequently placed behind a systematic description of the
anatomical structures – e.g., before dissecting an extremity, the
student can study the systematic anatomy of the involved bones,
joints, muscles, nerves, and vessels.
The correlations between clinical images like MRI and CT
scans can best be learned if sections of scans can be directly
compared with cadaveric anatomical sections of the same region.
In this edition, a number of MRI scans have been added that
have been taken in a plane of the related anatomical section. In
addition, functional MRI scans of the heart and the related
anatomical preparations are included, hopefully increasing the
importance of the atlas for clinical purposes.
While preparing this new edition, the authors were reminded
of how precisely, beautifully, and admirably the human body is
constructed. If this book helps the student or physician to appreciate
the overwhelming beauty of the anatomical architecture
of these tissues and organs, then it greatly fulfills its task. Deep
interest and admiration of these anatomical structures may
create the “love for the human being,” which unhesitatingly
becomes the inspiration to pursue the vocation of medicine.
