This introduction to kinesiology not only sets out the fundamentals of the discipline but also discusses the diversity of professions it encompasses. With the numerous illustrations and tables throughout, it is a user-friendly book with an accompanying website with additional resources.
The purpose is to help students understand at an elementary level the fundamentals of kinesiology and its various professions.
The book is written for students of kinesiology.
The fundamentals of kinesiology and its application in the world of physical activity are presented. The pictures and illustrations are the best features of the book, promoting a successful learning experience for all types of learners.
This is much more informative than the book I used as a student, and its illustrations and tables are more effective in helping readers understand/grasp concepts.
