Since the 1950s, Kinesiology: Scientific Basis of Human Motion has remained the definitive kinesiology text for college students. The twelfth edition continues the text’s tradition of examining human motion through the integrated presentation of anatomy and biomechanics and applying that knowledge to a wide variety of motor skills. This edition retains the text’s strong coverage of physiology combined with current scholarship in biomechanics as applied to motor skills. -- Provided by publisher

It uses a qualitative approach with an easy-to-follow writing style. Theory is balanced with many sport and real-world applications to promote the integrated nature of kinesiology, including the anatomical and biomechanical concepts. -- Provided by publisher

For children, playgrounds and play areas are a recipe for fun—or perhaps an accident waiting to happen. Playing without fear or tears provides many benefits to a child's development. Yet every year, hundreds of thousands of children suffer serious playground-related injuries that require emergency medical treatment. -- Provided by publisher
