Takes readers on a fascinating journey into the world
of human movement.


Delivers a unique teaching approach.

Instead of dissecting the body into smaller isolated pieces, as other textbooks do, Trail Guide to Movement builds the body, step by step, into larger, interconnected components. This approach has proven to deepen students’ understanding of how the various structures of the body work together to produce human movement.

This foundational kinesiology textbook explores the four key structures essential to movement — connective tissue, joints, muscles, and nerves — along with the concepts of biomechanics, posture, and gait. All with memorable illustrations and concise explanations.

Winner of a gold medal in the PubWest Book Design Awards, Trail Guide to Movement is written with the same easy-to-understand, encouraging voice and subtle humor as Trail Guide to the Body, the acclaimed textbook for teaching palpatory anatomy. Author Andrew Biel once again takes students on an engaging and inspiring journey through the human body.
