Here is a summary of replies to my request for recommendations of an
introductory clinical kinesiology text. It's hard to pick a clear winner,
but "Joint Structure and Function" seems to get the nod for functional
anatomy without a lot of hard physics, with Roger Enoka's book as a good
complement. Thanks much to all who replied (recommenders are in parentheses
after each title)!
