    I'd like to congratulate the editors with this new addition to the bookshelves
    of Biomechanics, and even more so because it is the first volume of a new
    book series started by the ISB. As ISB president, Aurelio Cappozzo has taken
    the challenge to start a series of standard handbooks which, I trust, will
    see many interesting additions in the coming years.
