“More than just clear, concise, and accurate, Dimon’s Anatomy of the Moving Body also wonderfully expresses the joy of musculoskeletal anatomic understanding—its marvelous vocabulary and endlessly fascinating relations of structure and function.”—John H. M. Austin, MD, Professor of Radiology, College of Physicians and Surgeons, Columbia University“Anatomy of the Moving Body is a superb work for students and teachers. Ted Dimon’s work is straightforwardly written, beautifully illustrated, and put forth with a sensibility of one who understands not simply how we are organized, but how our structure is able to move with grace and beauty. The conversational tone makes the book accessible and the information is conveyed with a sense not only of where things lie, but how they can operate most harmoniously. This book is an important contribution to our understanding of anatomy and an essential part of the training of those of us who are interested in the human form in balance, health, and motion.”—Anne Bluethenthal, Dancer, Teacher, Choreographer


Have you ever tried to learn anatomy from a picture book? It's like using a road map to learn geography: you can see where all the cities are but you can never retain the information. Like names on a road map, anatomical terms are impossibly hard to remember, and without understanding the meaning behind the concepts, we somehow feel we don't understand what it all means. To learn anatomy, we need more than pictures and labels; we need a way 'into' the subject, a means of making sense of what we are looking at. "Anatomy of the Moving Body" is a complete, lecture-based approach to anatomy that helps us to understand our complex anatomy by explaining the subject in down-to-earth terms.With nearly 100 3D illustrations, "Anatomy of the Moving Body" is clearly and beautifully illustrated. Over the course of 31 lectures, the author confidently guides the reader through this complex landscape and makes unfamiliar terrain become familiar. Each part of the body is explained in short, manageable sections. And the author doesn't just name the muscles and bones but explains the terminology and, in the process, helps to demystify and make sense of an otherwise intimidating subject.

In this, the second edition of the book, the 95 pencil drawings (roughly half of the book) in the original edition have been completely redone, using a 3D digital model of the human anatomical form.

Sehr gutes Buch, detailreiches Buch über die Funktionen der einzelnen Muskeln in prägnanter Klartheit! Zusammen mit dem Buch the Body in Motion vom gleichen Autor, das die Zusammenhänge von Haltung im zweibeiningen Modus unter entwicklungsgeschichtlichen Aspekten beleuchtete eine Offenbarung für den aufmerksamen Leser.

Misleading Cover 17. Februar 2011
Von Diane Cook - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Unlike the cover the illustrations in the book are only black and white which makes it harder to visualize the course and attachments of muscles. Trying to color in the muscles was useless as the illustrations are too dark. This would be a 5 star book if the illustrations mtched the cover.

A Unique Book on Anatomy 11. Oktober 2001
Von Dan Marcus - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
In "Anatomy of the Moving Body," Theodore Dimon, Jr. approaches his subject from a unique and focused perspective. By presenting anatomy in terms of function and evolutionary development and limiting his exploration to the neuromuscular system, Dimon has produced a book that is both user-friendly and fascinating. He manages the neat trick of lending clarity to this majestic subject while avoiding the pitfall of oversimplification. Of special interest in this regard is the light beam he shines into the murky shadows of intimidating anatomical terminology, showing the reader that there's nothing there to fear.
The subtitle of the book is "A Basic Course For Movement Educators. This provides the book with an organizing principle, but fails to convey the book's potentially broad appeal. It could be read with pleasure by all homo sapiens who wish to gain an enhanced understanding and appreciation of their evolutionary inheritance.

A Lifesaver 4. September 2012
Von P. Sayers - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This book is just what the doctor ordered. I am completing my certificate in fitness, which involves a fair bit of basic anatomy. Unfortunately, the course material on anatomy is not well written and is misleading in places, leading me to feel very confused about the structure and functions of (for example) the shoulder girdle.

Then I discovered Anatomy of the Moving Body and suddenly it is all making sense. The real strength of this book is that it achieves just what the author sets out to achieve, providing just the right amount of information for those of us who need to understand how the body moves and fits together, but do not need a medical degree or physiotherapy qualifications. This book is spot on in that regard and it is actually easy and enjoyable to read! I keep it with me all the time as an easy reference source.

One of the other reviews was critical of the fact that the drawings are in black and white, but I haven't found this to be a drawback at all. They are clear and easy to follow and I actually think that colour would have been an overkill and possibly would detract from the simple appeal of this book. I also have Chris Jarmey's The Concise Book of Muscles, which does have colour drawings. Used together, the two books are a great combination and I would thoroughly recommend getting both.

In summary, Anatomy of the Moving Body is a great resource for those who need a basic to intermediate knowledge of anatomy. It is well written, well laid out and delivers just the right amount of information. Well done to the author.

Written very clearly 18. September 2009
Von Trend - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Some anatomy books seem as if they are written deliberately complicated. That's my take. Not this one. If you are just starting Massage Therapy classes. I highly recommend you get this book, in addition to your course required books. Read your required book chapters and then follow up with this one. He's not "trippin" on his "Dr" Dimon Jr. title. On the book cover he even leaves his "Dr" title out of his name, but he is a Dr.(a Harvard graduate). He presents the material in his book like a good instructor would in you can understand. It's not written to show how smart he is. It is written so the person without knowledge of the musculoskeletal system can gain some. Actually, I think the book is a compilation of lectures he has given at the Dimon Institute. Yes, the "Dimon" Institute for the Alexander Technique in Cambridge. Don't miss out on a very knowledgeable author that knows how to convey his knowledge to other. Anatomy is anatomy, that doesn't change, but it's his presentation that is so good. Look at the price, very inexpensive compared to the 100.+ books you may be required to purchase. He really should charge more for his book.

Good 3D view but no colour 12. April 2011
Von Leo - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This book is worth it, each muscle is shown in 3 D view, with bones. I just was disapointed that only the cover page is in colour.
Compare to a classic anatomy book, the 3D view really helps to imagine the exact shape of each muscles.
I would suggest that sometimes, it would have been good if some muscles are not shown only alone with the bone, but also with other muscles.
For example, several extensors in the same view, not only each extensor with the bone.
However, i recommend this book.
