“I was a very good examiner, diagnostician and provided very good care to my patients and students. However, since I have purchased your book by curiosity, I have been better at what I do, and your manuals have become excellent tools to my practice. So thank you for the effort and excellent work and I will continue to support you!” – Dr. Viet Nguyen
“This book is the gold standard for practical muscle anatomy; with current evidence based information & phenomenal illustrations it has everything I need.”
“Wish I had all of these books when I was in school, classes would have been so much easier. They are a great reference for the chiropractic board exams.” – John Urbanski DC, DCFirst.com
“This text is the best of Gray, Travell, Kendall, Biel, Musculino & Tortora without all the excess fat – a lean mean educational machine.”
“This book easily makes the transition from the classroom to daily clinical practice – a book I use every day and worth its weight in gold.”
“If you work with muscles you need this book, period!”
