Teachers, students and practicing therapists are finding Mastering Muscles & Movement – A Brain-Friendly System for Learning Musculoskeletal Anatomy and Basic Kinesiology to be a valuable resource. Here is what some of them have to say.
"Mastering Muscles & Movement
presents an innovative and practical learning tool for students of Anatomy and Kinesiology. It is the first book that I have seen that actually demonstrates the steps to successful memorization and information retention. It gives you the sense that you are looking through the notes of the best student in class and learning their secret code. The simple, quick access to detailed content and the excellent selection of study tools will make this a book that students reach for first."

"Mastering Muscles and Movement
outshines every other learning guide I have seen, and it is the ONLY book offering a system that maximizes the learning potential for every student of anatomy, kinesiology, massage therapy, physical therapy, etc. The layout, images, muscle groupings, and tables included in the system are pure genius. The author provides helpful online learning resources that add power and efficiency to the system. The clear and concise images allow for quick referencing of material. I'm impressed with the accuracy and level of detail included on innervation, attachment sites, actions, joints, and ligaments. There is so much information packed into this gem of a book! Additionally, it includes sections on the muscles of the face and jaw as well as the pelvic floor, two areas that are often overlooked in kinesiology textbooks. Mastering Muscles and Movement
is truly in a class of its own and it is my first choice for instructing kinesiology courses and as a reference guide in my clinical practice."

"Mastering Muscles & Movement
makes human anatomy and kinesiology highly accessible to the reader. The information is presented in a format that accelerates the learning process and creates a long-term functional memory for the student. Accompanied with the study cards, Mastering Muscles & Movement makes learning fun and simple. I highly recommend this book for undergraduate to post-graduate students as well as practitioners in the field of healing arts and musculoskeletal medicine."

"A new client, 80 year old male, is coming for care. He walks regularly
and now has right hip pain and a right drop-foot while walking. I gathered five
kinesiology books and Mastering Muscles & Movement
(first time use of Dave’s
book). Within a 20 minute scan of all 6 books it was obvious that MMM provided
easy access to all the muscle details I needed with a very useful organization
and a clear simplicity that offered a comprehensive download in a short time.
This book would be a practical treasure in any body work practice."
William Prelle, BSci, LMT
"It motivates you to pay attention, clearly modeling not only how to study this subject, but why it is important and how it is interconnected. The details of the pictures and organized details of the charts enhance the learning process completely and will allow for easier referencing upon completion of training."
