This handy-sized volume on extremity anatomy is designed as an aid to the study of the skeletal muscles of the extremities and contains one hundred and six line drawings showing the muscle origin, insertion, nerve supply, and motor point with page references for each muscle to anatomies of Gray and Cunningham. This is an extremely valuable reference book for quick review of the muscles of the extremities and hence valuable to surgical residents, orthopedists, and in fact, anyone dealing with extremity problems. Physical therapists, occupational therapists, and nurses may find this additionally valuable as a means for their study in anatomy while in training and as a handy reference for their work thereafter. The clarity and brevity and simplicity of this book make it valuable for what it sets out to do, namely, provide the reader with a quick easy reference to muscle anatomy of the extremities.
