Book Preface

Between 1988, when Chris married my sister and 2008, the year of his untimely death, I had the good fortune to benefit from Chris’ depth of knowledge on matters pertaining to the health of the human body. As a physiotherapist and shiatsu practitioner, his understanding of anatomy and physiology was extensive. In addition, Chris’ skills as a teacher of shiatsu, yoga and meditation were widely respected, in particular his ability to explain complex concepts in simple, practical terms.

As a practicing GP I was delighted when Chris began to write books that encompassed the wide scope of his expertise. The Concise Book of the Moving Body, along with its companion The Concise Book of Muscles, sits on the shelf in my GP surgery. It is especially helpful as an aide-mémoire when I need a quick revision of anatomy. The clear, concise language and accompanying illustrations are easy to access and take the reader straight to the point. On occasion, I have found it useful in explaining symptoms to my patients, who are grateful for explanations that help demystify their ill health.

I’m delighted that The Concise Book of the Moving Body has now been repackaged and rebadged as The Pocket Atlas of Human Anatomy, and I am confident that it will serve as an excellent text for all students of anatomy and bodywork, whether in the field of medicine, sport or rehabilitation. I have no hesitation in recommending Chris’ textbook and will continue to appreciate the valuable contribution he has made. My hope is that this book will enhance your understanding of the human body and will become a trusted companion on your journey of discovery.
