In this sixth edition of Anatomy and Human Movement, we have made a number of small but significant changes, mainly to the text, which are designed to further improve the usefulness of this already successful book. In this edition, there have been further improvements to the illustrations and we have added some new illustrations. Where possible, structures such as ligaments or cartilage have been coloured the same throughout the book, in an attempt to further enhance the clarity of illustrations. The book has progressed a long way since the first edition in 1989 when only black and white was used throughout the text. As regards the content, we have continued to engage with the community of users of the book, namely, students, teachers, practitioners, and have responded to yet more suggestions. As a result of this very positive feedback, there has been some minor reordering within the text and expansion of some sections, namely those on joint replacement. The use of Summary Boxes at the end of various sections has been retained: they are intended to be used as a quick aid to revision when the majority of the subject area has been learned, but feedback suggests that some will use them to get a general overview before starting to tackle the detailed text. Helping individuals to understand, remember and apply anatomy has always been the prime purpose of this book. In response to the advances in the range of electronic aids to learning, the sixth edition also gives automatic access (unlocked by the unique PIN found on the inside front cover) to the e-book via Pageburst, allowing users to quickly search the entire book, make notes, add highlights and study more efficiently. In addition to this, the authors have helped create a separate five-hour modular e-learning course in functional human anatomy. At present, this is only available for purchase by universities and other institutions. This is presented in short lesson chunks following the body’s regional structure – ideal for the student to study at their own pace and time and the lecturer to assign accordingly. Learning is delivered via outcome measures, animation, video, quizzes, activity analyses and exams.
