Dear Biomech-L subscribers,

I plan to hold a course in biomechanics and human movement science for
engineering students, probably a mix of MS and PhD students, and am
having a hard time chosing an appropriate book. The students should
have a solid background in math and physics, but little or no
experience in biology and anatomy. I am hoping for a recommendation
for a book in this area that is
intermediate to advanced in mathematics and physics, yet rather basic
in muscle physiology, anatomy, movement analysis and preferably gait.
I warmly welcome recommendations.

Best regards,
Lanie Gutierrez-Farewik
