9780443103506: The Physiology of the Joints, Volume 1: Upper Limb, 6e

This text provides the reader an understanding of the mechanics of the joints with the help of diagrams rather than text. The commentaries are short (on double page spreads); the quality, clarity and simplicity of the drawings and diagrams are such that they could be understood without any verbal explanation. The drawings are unusually clear: everything which could hinder understanding has been removed and one feels that the author has foreseen the difficulties which the student could encounter. Each time a problem arises it is explained by a diagram which, though simplified, is extremely clear.
