Book Preface

Although this book was originally conceived as a set of lectures complemented by simple line drawings, this new edition features highly detailed and graphic three-dimensional illustrations, making it a far more complete reference than the first edition. Based on an accurate digital model of the musculoskeletal system, the muscle and bone images are now more clearly shown and presented from the most advantageous angle.

I would like to thank John Qualter, co-founder of Biodigital Systems, for supporting this project and for his vision and patience in putting together a digital model of the entire human anatomy. I would like to thank Lauren Edgar and John Reusch at Biodigital Systems for their excellent work in creating the illustrations, many of which had to be modeled from scratch.

I would also like to thank Darryl Lajeunesse and CD Media Studio for creating the elegant and detailed digital musculoskeletal model that served as the foundation for this project.

Thanks to Sarah Serafimidis of North Atlantic Books for her work on the earlier edition of this book and for her input on the new one. Finally, thanks to project editors Hisae Matsuda and Jessica Sevey, art director, Paula Morrison at North Atlantic Books, and to Brad Greene, designer of the new edition.
